Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Monday said the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) is working round the clock for the welfare of the masses.

“National resources are a trust of the nation and every penny of public money is being spent only on the progress and prosperity of the people,” he remarked over a high level meeting in Lahore’s Model Town on Monday.

Kissan Package: Khushab farmers seek fair distribution

The PML-N government is utilising national resources with honesty and transparency for the uplift and betterment of the people, he added.

Funds, the premier said, are being provided on priority basis for the provision of basic amenities to the citizens. “A number of programmes are being implemented expeditiously in Punjab as well as in the whole country for facilitating the people.”

According to him, besides completion of mega projects with transparency and speed, the government is also trying resolve the basic problems of the people.

Without naming the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, PM Nawaz said some elements tried to stop implementation of Kissan Package but they have been rejected by the people in the recent local government (LG) elections.

He added that the government attaches high importance to the welfare of the farming community and is providing relief to the cultivators through the historic Kissan Package.

The premier said that relief work was started for flood victims without wasting any time. He said he is personally supervising the process of provision of assistance to the calamity-hit people.

The Greater Iqbal Project, he said, is of historic importance and this element should be highlighted in the construction work while due attention should be paid to the provision of maximum recreational facilities to the citizens.

PM Nawaz said that elected representatives should pay maximum attention to the solution of the problems of the people. “No effort should be spared for the provision of education and health facilities, potable water, infrastructure development and solution of other basic issues.”

Speaking on the occasion, Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif said that people have expressed their complete confidence in the leadership of PML-N in the first and second phase of LG polls. “The results of LG elections have authenticated the outcomes of the 2013 parliamentary polls.” The Punjab government, he said, is implementing a policy for the development of urban and rural areas. “The Kissan package is being speedily implemented.”

CM added that in the first phase of Khadim-e-Punjab Rural Roads Programme, construction and rehabilitation work of more than 2,000km long roads has been completed and now in the second phase of this project work is in progress .
