LAHORE: A delegation of PTI south Punjab led by president Noor Khan Bhabha and general secretary Ali Raza Dareshak called on Chief Minister Punjab Sardar Usman Buzdar at his office here on Monday and discussed matters of mutual interest.
Talking on this occasion, the CM stated that south Punjab secretariat will be established in the next financial year adding that posts of additional chief secretary and additional IG police have been sanctioned for it. The PTI government is going to fulfil its promise of a south Punjab secretariat as it does what it states. This secretariat will help solve the problems of the local people at their doorsteps, he added.
The CM regretted that the past rulers ignored the welfare of the masses living in southern Punjab and used the slogan of southern Punjab province for their political gains. The development funds meant for the prosperity of south Punjab were wasted on personal projection in the past but the incumbent government has ensured that development funds of southern Punjab districts are not ring-fenced.
The CM emphasized that party leaders will be given full respect and their genuine issues will be solved on a priority basis because their respect is his respect. Our every moment is meant for giving a better future to the people and public service is the only agenda, he added. The meetings with party leaders will be continued and doors of CM Office are opened to the party workers. Those who have sacrificed for the party are the crowns of our heads, the CM added.
Those who called on CM included Vice Presidents of PTI south Punjab Mian Farzand Ali, Naeem Warraich, Secretary-General Sohail Khan, Additional Secretary General Musaddaq Shah and others. Sami Ullah Chaudhary, MPA and Secretary Good Governance Committee Col. (R) Ejaz Hussain Manhais also attended the meeting.
