Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar has said that the provincial government has allocated 190 billion rupees for development of South Punjab in budget of the ongoing fiscal years.

In a statement issued here on Monday, he was of the view that the PTI-led government believes in performance and delivery instead of hoodwinking the people with hollow slogans.

Usman Buzdar said the incumbent government promoted the concept of balanced development in the province; and due to this policy, South Punjab has joined the development journey.

The development budget was ring-fenced along with a compilation of the separate ADP book, he said adding that credit goes to the PTI government for allocating a separate budget to ensure development and prosperity in south Punjab.

The chief minister reiterated that development was a fundamental right of the people living in south Punjab districts and pointed out that another commitment was fulfilled by giving administrative autonomy to the south Punjab secretariat. The cabinet has also passed the south Punjab secretariat’s rules of business, he stated.
