LAHORE - While rejecting a proposal to increase WASA charges, Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif on Tuesday directed the authorities concerned to make the agency a proactive and vibrant institution which should come up to the expectations of the people and short and long term plan should be evolved for the purpose. The chief minister presided over a meeting to review the performance of WASA and said that emphasis should be laid on reorganisation of WASA, its reformation and induction of the best professional workforce in the institution. He said increase in WASA utility bills would put financial burden on the masses for increasing the income of WASA. He directed that provision of the best facilities should be ensured first and this proposal should be considered afterwards. Issuing instructions for restructuring of WASA, he said that a two-to-three years plan should be evolved with the consultation of elected representatives in this regard. Members National Assembly Mian Marghoob Ahmad, Pervaiz Malik Members Provincial Assembly Khawaja Salman Rafiq, Mian Shahbaz Ahmad, Mehr Ishtiaq, Chairman Planning and Development, Secretaries of Finance and Housing departments, Commissioner and District Coordination Officer Lahore and senior officers concerned were present. Addressing the meeting, the CM said that despite heavy expenditure, the performance of WASA could not be described as satisfactory. He said that reorganisation of the institution was need of the hour and he was not interested in proposals but solution to the problem. He said that just as measures had been taken for improvement of the efficiency of Solid Waste Management, similar steps should also be taken in respect of WASA to make it a modern agency.
