In a statement, Chief Minister Punjab Sardar Usman Buzdar said the development work will benefit citizens in their daily mobility. The projects have been designed according to the city needs and public priorities are given importance instead of personal projection, he added.

Meanwhile, the CM affirmed that a 1000-bed hospital will be constructed and Rs1.5 billion is allocated for the installation of a surface water treatment plant to fulfil the water needs of the citizens.

Sardar Usman Buzdar further said the development roadmap valuing Rs560 billion will ensure genuine development as the annual development programme will cultivate every district.

In a statement, the CM said parliamentarians have been consulted adding that a 66 per cent increase in the development programme in a year shows the strong development priorities of the government.

The difficult decisions made for economic stabilization, have started yielding positive results and Punjab is moving forward rapidly, the CM maintained.

The development programme will augur well for the province and fruits of development will reach every nook and corner of the province. He regretted the people yearned for development in the past as progress was shown in papers only.

The PTI inherited the devastated economy in 2018 as wrong policies and exhibitory projects have bankrupted the province, he added.
