The CM praised the efforts of Governor Punjab Ch. Muhammad Sarwar to express solidarity with the citizens by visiting Karachi. The PTI government is standing with the citizens of Karachi in this hour of trial. The Punjab government has taken solid steps to fulfil the promises made with the people and taxes have been abolished or their ratio has been decreased keeping in view the difficulties of the citizens, he added. The CM stated that local government funds have been restored and financial transparency and merit in administrative matters is the agenda of the government.
Honesty, transparency, merit and truthfulness are the hallmarks of the Punjab government, he added. The era of political jugglery is over and the government takes practical steps for public service, he further said. The CM regretted that opposition made a futile attempt of political point-scoring on Karachi issue and asserted that Prime Minister Imran Khan is fully committed to resolving the problems of Karachi.
Governor Punjab Ch. Sarwar stated that he visited Karachi to express solidarity with the rain-affected people adding that all our sympathies are with the affectees. Opposition only did lip-service on the issue of rains in Karachi and, instead of engaging in negative politics, it should have come forward to help the affectees of Karachi. The PTI government will heal the wounds of Karachi under the leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan. The universal coverage of Sehat Insaf Card is a historic decision of the PTI government. The PTI is promoting development and transparency in Punjab and its two-year performance is encouraging, he further stated.
