LAHORE:  

Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar has said the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government is working on a comprehensive programme to empower the youth. He said Pakistan is among one the blessed countries in which 60% of the population consist of the youth.

He was talking to a youth delegation at his office on Saturday.

The chief minister said this segment of society is a ray of the hope for the country. “We can cover the journey to the progress by imparting skills to the youth and making them empowered.

He said the new generation is blessed with capabilities and is determined to serve the nation. Buzdar said the future of new Pakistan depends on the youth. He found it unfortunate that governments in the past have not invested in the youth or empowered them.

“The youth is our asset and we will formulate a comprehensive policy to benefit from this asset. The PTI government will use all its resources to gain benefit from the capabilities of the youth and we will ensure implementation of this policy.” He said the destiny of the nation can be changed by providing rights to the youth. “We will provide a strong foundation to our national economy by empowering the youth.

The chief minister said the PTI government gives top priority to public service and the development and progress of the nation. He said we cannot progress without giving rights to the youth. He added the nation had high hopes from talented and intelligent youngsters. He continued that Pakistan was the country of the people and everyone should work collectively for its development.

Buzdar said the PTI government is working with sincerity for the bright future of the country. He added the PTI government will provide all-out resources for the youth as it is part of the party's agenda.
