LAHORE: Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar has said that the government believes in composite development and an equitable development package of Rs 360 billion has been allocated for each district. The small districts like Rajanpur were befooled with false promises, said Usman Buzdar. He said that for the first time in history, the incumbent government allocated more than 35% of the development budget for Southern Punjab whereas this percentage was only 17 in the past.

He was talking to PTI MNA Sardar Nasrullah Draishak, MPAs and party office bearers in Rajanpure. Deputy Speaker Punjab Assembly Dost Muhammad Mazari, Provincial Minister for Livestock Sardar Hasnain Bahadur Draishak, Advisor Hanif Potafi, MPA Sardar Owais Dareshk, MPA Khurram Leghari, PTI official Sardar Ali Raza Dareshk and other leaders were also present on the occasion.

He said that the Southern Punjab Secretariat has been set up keeping in view the promises made with the people of the area adding that the time of development of Southern Punjab has now been started. He said that the illogical alliance of PDM has met its logical end as the elements in opposition parties are not even sincere with each other. The people have rejected the narrative of PDM. There is no threat to the government from a failed opposition. Under the leadership of PM Imran Khan the government will complete its tenure. The only thing the opposition is engaged in is making a hue and cry. He directed that elected representatives should keep a close liaison with the public and left no stone unturned to resolve the peoples’ problems.

The Chief Minister Punjab Sardar Usman Buzdar visited, Muzaffargarh and Multan on Sunday and participated in different ceremonies including the inauguration of a national campaign of vaccinating children for preventing Measles and Rubella, laying the foundation stone of upgradation project of Hazrat Khawaja Ghulam Fareed shrine in Kot Mithan as well as meeting with the leaders of PTI.

He also directed the concerned authorities to complete the project as soon as possible. He reiterated that the upgradation project of Hazrat Khawaja Ghulam Fareed Shrine will be monitored and the shrine will be restored in its original form. He said besides providing basic facilities to the devotees, the upgradation project of the shrine included a complete renovation of Majlis Khana as well as building, setting up of a library, place of ablution, expansion of the courtyard and constructing western entrances of the Shrine. He said that Hazrat Khawaja Ghulam Fareed gave the lesson of peace and harmony and there is a dire need to spread his teaching in the present situation. Usman Buzdar said that the spiritual personalities of Islam impressed people through their character and behaviour. The Chief Minister was briefed about the plan for the upgradation of Hazrat Khwaja Ghulam Fareed Shrine. Usman Buzdar inspected the upgradation project.
