Public service sole object

CHISHTIAN-: The objective of local governments is to provide basic life facilities to the masses at their doorsteps, which also is the mission of the incumbent government.

Tehsil Municipal Committee chairman Ch Abdur Razzaq Ramay stated while talking to media during his visit to local Ramazan Bazaar here on Friday. He said the government is making all-out efforts to resolve the public problems on priority basis. He claimed those, doing dharna politics, will be rejected in the next general elections. He claimed loadshedding will be eliminated next year. “The government will fulfil all its promises made with the public as public confidence is the core of the PML-N success,” he pointed out.

Rana Amir Mukhtar, Jamil, Sajid, Kashif Javed and Shaukat Kharel were also present on the occasion.
