Lahore : Spokesman to punjab chief minister Dr. Shahbaz Gill has said that punjab advisory council for governance has been set up to benefit from the expertise of professors.
Addressing a press conference at CM office today, he said that PTI believes in consultations so as to fulfill the promise of good governance. Establishment of punjab advisory council for governance is a step in this regard in which all members will work on honorary basis and will present their recommendations for public welfare and betterment of the government departments.
He said that former federal minister Dr. Salman Shah, former federal secretary Salman Siddique, Vice Chancellor LUMS Dr. Arshid Ali, Justice (R) Muhammad Farrukh Mehmood, industrialist Gohar Ijaz, industrialist Fawad Mukhtar, educationist MA Rauf, former federal secretary Javed Iqbal Awan, former federal secretary Taimoor Azmat Osman, industrialist Ahmed Kamal, businessman Murtaza Hashwani, secretary to chief minister (coordination) and chairperson taskforce Fazeel Asif are included in this council.
He said that personal interest was given priority in the past and personal projection was made through expensive projects instead of fulfilling the public needs. He said that no step was taken to improve agri productivity and projects like metro became burden due to economic maladministration.
He said that punjab government is following mobile arazi center project but the chief minister has directed to constitute a committee to review the estimate of a van worth Rs. 2.5 crore. For the first time, punjab has got a chief minister whose doors are always opened for the people but the situation was different in the past. No family politics will be done now. Now ministers are more powerful and empowered.
To a question, he said that this council will give proposals to improve service delivery. This council will regularly meet to give recommendations to the chief minister.
