LAHORE, (Muzaffargarh.City – 12th Apr, 2018 ) :Punjab Chief Minister Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif Thursday said the PML-N was bringing about a genuine revolution of prosperity to the people and development in the country.
Special attention had been paid to the development of less-developed areas under the strategy of ensuring composite development, he said and added the government had given more development funds to the southern Punjab as compared to its population and it had resulted in composite development and prosperity there.
Talking to different MNAs and MPAs hailing from southern Punjab, the Chief Minister said, southern Punjab had moved on the road to genuine development, adding the people were well aware about the genuine leadership that had burnt the midnight oil for their prosperity.
He said credit of doing practical steps went to the PML-N with respect to restoration of defunct province of Bahawalpur and southern Punjab province. However, he said, some political elements were trying to emotionally exploit the people in the name of province.
He said the PML-N government had provided more than 42 percent development funds to the southern Punjab during the current fiscal year and CT scan facility, hepatitis filter clinics, international standard medicines and other latest medical facilities were provided to the hospitals in southern Punjab.
He said the PML-N leadership had always stood shoulder to shoulder with the people of southern Punjab during floods or any other eventuality. The Chief Minister said thousands of kilometers long roads had been constructed and expanded in the villages of southern Punjab under “Pakian Sarkan Sukhay Painday Program”.
“This has helped the people living in rural areas in a number of ways and has also ensured easy transportation of commodities from farms to markets. Any effort to stop the journey of development and prosperity will be failed and this development process which has been started from Punjab will be extended to the whole of the country,” concluded the Chief Minister.
On the occasion, members of the assembly said Shehbaz Sharif was a genuine leader of the people who had served the residents of Rajanpur from the core of his heart during worst floods. “Shehbaz Sharif has won the hearts of the people by allocating record budget for the southern Punjab,” they said.
