Bureau Report

SIALKOT: Special Assistant to Chief Minister (SACM) on Information Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan has said that the past rulers pushed the Punjab province under Rs 1200 billion debt, but Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar was working hard to put the province on the road to prosperity.
Talking to the media here, she said that each penny of the development fund was being spent on public welfare projects according to Prime Minister Imran Khan’s vision. She said that Punjab CM Usman Buzdar retrieved government lands from the land mafia and he was firmly standing against all other mafias.
The SACM said that negative and baseless propaganda was being spread by the opposition about the chief minister’s assets and vehicles. She said that the past rulers looted the national wealth ruthlessly and had ever done the politics of their personal gains.
She said the CM Punjab was given a car by his father, saying that all assets of the chief minister were declared in the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) record.
Dr Firdous said that it was time to fulfill the promises made by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and this year all projects for welfare of people would be completed on time.
