The CM said that following the golden principles of brotherhood and unity is the prime need of the time and we all should work together for betterment and development of our country by putting behind personal interests and political affiliations.

“Pakistan is our pride and identity; we have to rise as a dignified nation in the world by keeping our political differences aside,” he said, adding: “Pakistan is facing internal and external challenges and there is no room for politics of chaos in present scenario.”

Moreover, the CM directed to launch indiscriminate crackdown against the artificial price-hikers, profiteers and hoarders in the province.

The CM directed Cabinet Committee for Price Control to ensure availability of essential items at fixed rates to the public and warned that no laxity or negligence will be tolerated in this regard. He further directed to initiate legal action against artificial price-hikers.

He said that under Anti-Hoarding Ordinance 2020 action should also be taken against the hoarders. He said that such elements do not deserve any leniency and the government will go to last extent in providing relief to the people of the province. Curbing such mafia is necessary to safeguard the rights of consumers.
