Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar has stated that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI)-led government was building a surface waste-water treatment plant along with underground tanks to store rainwater for use, he said.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, he added the government had launched several development projects worth billions of rupees to provide quality amenities to the people of Lahore.

The CM further said the development schemes valuing Rs67 billion had been announced for Lahore, excluding the much-trumpeted Orange Line train project, during the previous government, while the PTI government earmarked Rs86 billion for various development schemes for the provincial metropolis in just three years. Meanwhile, the Ravi Urban Development project and Central Business District were futuristic initiatives of the present government, he added. Similarly, Dilkash Lahore, electric buses, 1000-bedded new general hospital and mother & child hospital at Ganga Ram Hospital were some of the schemes for Lahore, he revealed.

“These schemes will solve problems of the citizens.”
