Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar has said the government was committed to solving problems of the people as public service was the essence of democracy.
He stated this during a meeting to address civic problems on Tuesday.
The chief minister listened to their problems and issued directions for the redressal of their complaints at the earliest.
The government had diverted resources towards deprived areas and the development journey had been moved towards far-flung areas to ensure composite development, Buzdar further said. "I will not sit idle and continue efforts to resolve the problems of the people living in remote areas," the CM reiterated.
He emphasised that spate of development activities would result in a real change in underprivileged areas. The development process would be further accelerated to facilitate the common man, he added. The resources were kept limited to some specific cities in the past, he lamented.
The chief minister added that those creating hurdles in the development journey had become a thing of the past while deprived areas had been included in the development process by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf-led government.
The visiting people thanked the CM for his commitment to resolving their issues. He remarked that maintaining a direct liaison with the people was a good gesture.
Meanwhile, the chief minister further said the strong role of religious minorities in the development of the country cannot be ignored. In his message on National Minorities Day, being observed today, Buzdar asserted that minorities enjoy equal rights across the province. “The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI)-led government is fully committed to providing equal opportunities for development of every segment of the society.” The constitution of Pakistan ensures the protection of fundamental rights and it is also a part of PTI’s manifesto, he added. The religious minorities were provided equal opportunities for inclusion in the development process, the provincial chief executive claimed.
