Sindh Local Government Minister Saeed Ghani has asked the provincial public health engineering and rural development officials to build new development projects on a priority basis aimed for supplying clean drinking water to the residents of the underprivileged areas in the province.

Ghani issued these directives on Saturday while chairing a meeting to review ongoing and proposed new development schemes of the Sindh local government and public health engineering departments.

He told public health engineering officials that there should not be any delay in completion of the development schemes in the faraway underprivileged and rural areas of Sindh.

The public health engineering department should build development projects of reverse-osmosis water filtration plants, roads, and drainage schemes on a priority basis, he instructed.

Ghani said there should not be any compromise on the quality of the development schemes in the province.

He announced that he would personally inspect the under-construction development schemes to ensure no compromise on the quality of their work. He directed the officials concerned to ensure the timely completion of the development projects.

Those development projects, the construction of which could not be completed within the stipulated time, should be completed by the end of the current calendar year, he said.
