The PTI government has given priority to composite development of the 36 districts, he added.
Moreover, the CM said in a statement that free health insurance will be provided to the entire population in the province. "Up-to 66 percent increase has been made in the development budget and a composite roadmap of genuine development has been introduced in the province," the CM said, adding: "Parliamentarians were consulted to finalize the Annual Development Programme and Rs 25 billion have been allocated for completion of mega projects."
