Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar has stated that composite development is a priority of the PTI government and it has launched development projects after identifying genuine public needs and requirements for different areas.
In a statement issued here on Friday, he vowed that no area will remain deprive of development adding that backward areas are given equal importance in the development journey. Development is the fundamental right of the people of south Punjab which has been returned to them by the PTI government, he continued.
The Punjab cabinet has approved rules of business of the south Punjab secretariat and the government has fulfilled its promise by giving administrative autonomy to it, he stated.
CM Usman Buzdar regretted that the past government befooled the people of south Punjab with empty slogans and re-appropriated South Punjab funds for projects of choice. The PTI government has allocated a ring-fenced budget of Rs. 189 billion to ensure balanced development in south Punjab
districts, he said.
The foundation stone of the South Punjab secretariat will be laid soon in Bahawalpur while a separate ADP book is also printed, he concluded.
