LAHORE: Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar on Monday said Apna Ghar Housing Project was a milestone initiative which would help to provide much-needed roof to the homeless people and also create new job opportunities in the housing sector.
The Punjab CM has reiterated that selfless public service was the prime agenda of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government. “We don’t have any other plan except continuously serving the people with dedication.”
“The government is solving the problems of the hapless segments on priority basis. Regrettably, resources were allocated in the past for selected areas only but the PTI government has given particular attention to the development of deprived areas and people will be given back their rights by developing the far-flung areas,” he said while talking to the elected representatives here at his office. Minister of State for Housing & Works Ghulam Shabir Ali, Ghulam Bibi Bharwana MNA and Aasia Amjad MPA were also present on this occasion.
Assembly members were regularly consulted in development schemes and a close liaison should also be maintained by the assembly members with the people of their areas so as to timely solve their problems, Buzdar said.
While talking to a youth delegation, the chief minister said that youth were the precious asset of the country adding that provision of educational facilities to them was imperative for national development.
“For this purpose, government is following a policy of improving the skills of the youth by promoting co-curricular activities in the educational institutions,” he said.
During the current fiscal year, three high-quality universities will be established in central, southern and northern parts of the province. A feasibility study is being conducted for the establishment of these universities, the chief minister concluded.
