Lahore : Chief Minister Punjab Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif held a detailed meeting with Governor Punjab Rafiq Rajwana, here today. During the meeting, matters of mutual interest including development schemes and the ongoing public welfare programs for the Southern Punjab came under discussion.
On the occasion, the Chief Minister said that a new history of public service by following the principles of honesty, trust and hard work has been written by the Punjab government and every step of the government is taken for the prosperity of the people. It is the time to maintain unity and cohesion instead of disunity and Pakistan shall be moved forward by promoting the passions of national unity and brotherhood. He said that the Punjab government has speedily completed different mega initiatives in the province to provide relief to the people and added that development of southern Punjab has been given particular importance. More funds are provided for development schemes as compared to the population ratio in southern Punjab. Such schemes have been accomplished for the development of southern Punjab having no resemblance in the past. He said that thousands of kilometres long rural roads have been constructed and repaired with the cost of billions of rupees under Khadim-e-Punjab Rural Roads Program. Meanwhile, initiatives like Daanish schools, mobile health units and other mega welfare programs are also started in the southern Punjab. Regrettably, the past rulers befooled the masses of southern Punjab with hollow slogans and tall claims and took no practical steps to end the deprivation of the area. Similarly, the rulers belonging to the southern Punjab also badly ignored this area. However, the incumbent government has completed many mega projects for the development of southern Punjab and to improve the quality of the life of the people. The public welfare projects started by the PML-N government in the southern Punjab have no resemblance in the 70 years history. The people of southern Punjab have reposed their confidence over the PML- N and they will do so in future as well, concluded the Chief Minister.
On the occasion, Governor Punjab Rafique Rajwana said that the PML-N government has taken revolutionary steps for the development and wellbeing of the southern Punjab by providing additional funds amounting to billions of rupees. He said that Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif personally supervises every mega initiative of southern Punjab and has served the people of southern Punjab in the real sense. That is why, the people of southern Punjab enthusiastically love the Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif, concluded the Governor.
