CM Usman Buzdar Reviews Pace Development Schemes
Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar chaired a meeting at his office to review the pace of development schemes in the Koh-e-Suleman area of DG Khan.
Senior Member Board of Revenue (SMBR) Babar Hayat Tarar, Urban Unit CEO and others attended the meeting. The DG Khan Commissioner and deputy commissioner participated in the meeting through video link.
The CM directed the officers to finalise the master plans of THQ Hospital and tehsil complex without any delay, adding that a piece of land should also be reserved for the judges and lawyers’ chambers.
“Similarly, quality testing of soil and water should be completed immediately,” he added. “Alongside, expansion in the scope of Koh-e-Suleman Development Authority should be studied, and the public welfare schemes under district development package should be completed within the timeframe in DG Khan,” he added. He termed the district development package a historic step to ensure holistic development and inclusive growth in the province.
Similarly, the CM explained that Sorra Dam would benefit the people of the area by providing water for irrigation purposes to boost agriculture. “This project has been designed to meet the needs of the locals,” he stated. “Regrettably, no past government ever thought of storing hill-torrents’ waters and resources were wasted by starting exhibitory projects while ignoring the real needs of the people. The past rulers compounded the difficulties of the people instead of healing their wounds,” he concluded.
