Those engaged in negative politics should realise facts as PDM had compounded the difficulties of the people, he added. Usman Buzdar maintained that the opposition was undermining national interest for safeguarding some personal stakes. On the other side, public service was the main agenda of the PTI and the government would work hard to provide various facilities to the citizens, he said. The chief minister reiterated that the people of South Punjab had been given their rights for the first time as the government was fulfilling its promises made with the people. The South Punjab secretariat had been made functional and the people’s problems were being resolved locally, he said and regretted that the past governments befooled the residents of South Punjab through hollow slogans and maintained that South Punjab districts would have been developed if resources were not spent on areas of choice.
The past rulers used South Punjab province for promoting their politics while the people continued to languish in the quagmire of poverty, he added. It was satisfying that an era of composite development had started under the leadership of PM Imran Khan as South Punjab funds had been ring-fenced and the credit went to the PTI government that it had materialised the need of South Punjab secretariat, concluded the CM.
Meanwhile, the chief minister said that the PDM had been badly exposed to the people. In a statement, he said the untimely agitation drive of the opposition was an exercise in futility.The agitators striving to obstruct the development process had been badly exposed, he said and added that these elements would continue to bewail while Pakistan would move forward under the strong leadership of PM Imran Khan.
