LAHORE - Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar Friday said foundation of ‘New Pakistan’ had been laid under the leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan and they all had to move forward collectively to materialise this dream.

In ‘New Pakistan,’ he said, division between the poor and the rich would be bridged and the dream of change would be fulfilled with the establishment of a society which based on socio-economic justice and equality. It was the strong commitment of the PTI government, he added. He was talking to different delegations which called on him at the Chief Minister’s office.

Contrary to it, he said, the PTI government had taken solid steps for public welfare in a short span of time because they believed in actions and did not rest upon claims. He said, Prime Minister Imran Khan had set a new example of simplicity and austerity.

Usman Buzdar said, resources were kept limited to only certain areas in the past by former rulers while the problems of the backward areas were ignored.

The chief minister said, the PTI government would provide necessary facilities to remote areas, adding he was personally supervising the development agenda of the province. Also, hundreds of citizens from different districts of the province met with Chief Minister Punjab Sardar Usman Buzdar at his office here on Friday after the Jummah prayer.

The CM shook hands with the visitors and inquired about them. He asked the staff for providing immediate relief to the citizens adding that no leniency would be tolerated in this regard as public service is the important agenda of the government. The visitors were offered tea and biscuits who also took selfies with the Chief Minister.
