Punjab Governor Chaudhry Sarwar laid the foundation stone of 146 schemes of Punjab Aab-e-Pak Authority (PAPA) in Lahore Division while during a press conference here on Monday.

Ch Sarwar demanded the formation of the Punjab Finance Commission so that all districts receive development funds in accordance with their population. PDM will do a Long March against one another not against the government.

I assure Jahangir Khan Tareen that the government agencies will not interfere in the cases against him and justice will be done.

PML-N and PPP governments have completed their constitutional term; therefore, fulfilling its term is also a constitutional and democratic right of the PTI Government.

According to details, Punjab Governor Ch Sarwar has laid the foundation stone of 16 drinking water schemes for Lahore, 82 for Kasur, 21 for Nankana Sahib and 27 for Sheikhupura during an event at Governor’s House Lahore.

More than Rs399 million will be spent on these schemes. Special Assistant to Chief Minister Punjab Dr Firdous Ashiq Aiwan, Senator PTI Ijaz Ahmed Chaudhry and members of Tehreek-e-Insaf Lahore Assembly and Chairman Punjab Aab-e- Pak Authority Dr Shakeel Ahmad, Chief Executive Punjab Water Aab-e-Pak Authority Syed Zahid Aziz were also present among others on the occasion.

After the ceremony, during the conference, Governor Ch Sarwar said that we emerged successful during the general elections because PTI was on the same page and said that there should be no intra-party politics within the party.

In response to the question about Jehangir Khan Tareen, Ch Sarwar said that we have always advocated justice and all the cases against Jahangir Khan Tareen are being investigated, so I cannot say anything about them right now as they are currently under investigation but I assure Jahangir Khan Tarin that no institution, including the federal or Punjab government, will be biased in his case and justice will be served.
