LAHORE: Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar said Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf has taken the lead when it comes to introducing legislation. He was addressing a party parliamentary meeting at the PA cafeteria on Tuesday to discuss the implications of the new local bodies system.
The CM took the time to thank parliamentarians for reposing their confidence in him. "We will work in such a way for public welfare that it will always be remembered in history", he said. Buzdar continued that problems faced by citizens would be resolved by visiting divisions and districts.
