Ensure better facilities to masses: PM

Imran, Buzdar discuss overall political situation


Chief Minister (CM) Usman Buzdar called on Prime Minister Imran Khan here on Wednesday. Matters of mutual interest, political situation, law and order situation of Punjab were discussed during the meeting. PM Imran directed Punjab CM to extend the circle of developmental and social welfare projects. PM also advised Usman Buzdar to ensure the timely release of better facilities to the common man. Chief Secretary Punjab and Inspector General Punjab (IGP) Police were also present on the occasion. Meanwhile, Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday approved the board members of Aab-e-Pak Authority, established for the provision of safe drinking water to the whole of population of Punjab. Punjab Governor Chaudhry Sarwar has been appointed the authority’s patron-in-chief while Ahmed Nawaz Saleem has been named as chairman Aab-e-Pak Authority. The other members include Faisal Mukhtar (West Punjab), Rabia Zia, Mian Talat and Faisal Ahmed. Punjab governor said the Aab-e-Pak Authority project will provide clean water to the entire Punjab province. The Punjab Assembly had set up the Punjab Aab-e-Pak Authority as the House passed the authority’s Bill 2019 with a majority vote on March 14. However, the opposition had objected to the position of patron-inchief being given to the governor. The idea of creating filtration plants across the province was conceived by Mr Sarwar himself and he had given a detailed presentation to Prime Minister Imran Khan when he visited Lahore in November last year. The newly-established authority will provide clean drinking water to nearly 110 million people by installing water filtration plants all over Punjab. The plants will also be installed inside jails, hospitals, and universities. Moreover, Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday reached Ghokti to offer condolence over the demise of his cabinet member and the former chief minister Sindh Ali Mohammad Mahar. Premier Khan offered condolence with the heirs of Ali Mohammad Mahar and prayed for the eternal peace of the departed soul. Later on, he will attend a lunch at Gohar Palace by Ali Gohar Mahar.
