He pledged to provide health and education facilities to the people by the end of their five-year tenure.
About the ongoing accountability process, Kamal said, “We don’t want to get involved in the blame game, but those who have looted the public money should be held accountable.”

The CM said that despite too many challenges, the government would succeed in steering the province out of the prevailing financial crisis.
