Special funds to be acquired for Multan


MULTAN Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi Saturday said that special funds would be acquired from the Punjab government for development of Multan. While chairing a meeting to review uplift projects across the district, he said that all local parliamentarians would try their best to get more funds for the city of saints. Sewerage was one of the main issues of city; he said adding that funds would be used effectively. He also expressed annoyance over poor performance of Water and Sanitation Authority’s officers. He lamented that funds to the tune of Rs 2 billion were returned due to lack of capacity in Water and Sanitation Agency (Wasa). He said that Wasa officers should review their performance, as they would have to improve their capacity to serve masses, Qureshi warned.
