LAHORE   -  Acting Governor Ch Parvez Elahi called on Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar at his office on Thursday and discussed strengthening of working relationship for the larger good of the people as well as development schemes.

According to an official handout, both agreed to continue working jointly for the betterment of the people. They also expressed complete solidarity with the oppressed people of Kashmir and condemned the illegal Indian step of revoking the constitutional status of the held valley.

Usman Buzdar said that PTI will take along its allied parties to implement its agenda of public service. Without caring for the criticism, we are moving ahead with the agenda of public service while the opposition is engaged in the politics of non-issues”, he said, adding that time to befool the people with hollow slogans was over. 

Usman Buzdar said that the PTI government identified its priorities in the right manner unlike the previous governments. He said new local bodies system will give a new direction to the concept of public service. The chief minister said that local bodies system has been redone to devolve the power and authority to the genuine representatives of the people at the grassroots.

Parvez Elahi said his party would continue to support CM and work with him to provide relief to the people in the province. “Chief Minister Usman Buzdar is serving the people while former rulers showed-off in the name of development. The gimmickry of Khadim-e-Aala has been exposed before the people”, he said, adding that the opposition had no agenda.  He said province was ruined in the past while it presented a picture of development and prosperity during his tenure as chief minister. “We left a surplus kitty but the past government has bankrupted the province and the public welfare schemes of my tenure succumbed to the altar of ego and the common man was the victim of this delay,” he maintained.
