LAHORE:Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar has said the country is moving towards development and prosperity as the PTI government has taken several steps for public welfare.
In a statement, the chief minister said the government expenditures had been sufficiently curtailed by the incumbents. Those who bankrupted the country could not claim to be leaders, he stressed.
The CM reiterated that the direction and commitment of the government are in the right direction. He regretted that national resources were mercilessly wasted in the past in the garb of exhibitory projects. The PTI government has done away with the wrong tradition of wasting national resources because the government money is the sacred trust of the people, he added.
The defeated elements are conspiring against PM Imran Khan from the day one but the public service-oriented politics of the prime minister has foiled every conspiracy. The people will continue to side with the PTI despite the spate of propaganda and the new Pakistan will move forward under the leadership of PM Imran Khan, concluded the CM.
Usman Buzdar thanked Almighty Allah for recovery from corona and added that he was also obliged to the people for their prayers. “I will continue the core mission of public service as serving the masses is the main agenda of the PTI government,” he said and asked the citizens to follow SOPs as the corona is a viral disease. The chief minister congratulated the nation on a successful test of guided multi-launching rocket system Fatah-1.
In a statement, the CM paid tributes to the scientists adding that a successful test of 140-kilometre long missile system would further strengthen the national defence. Pakistan is a peaceful country but has the full capability to give a befitting reply to any aggression, he added.
