Patch work of roads will be completed and hanging electricity cables would be removed before Ashura-e-Muharram. Punjab Minister for Cooperatives Muhammad Iqbal Channer said this speaking at a meeting on Saturday.
He said both of these steps were essential to ensure security during Ashura-e-Muharram and other important days. He said directions had also been issued to departments concerned to launch an extensive cleanliness campaign in the province. He added cleanliness arrangements were an important part of security arrangements.
Negligence in this regard will not be tolerated and the responsible persons will have to face strict disciplinary action, he said.
