LAHORE:Local Government and Community Development (LG&CD) Minister Zeeshan Rafiq, while presiding over a video link meeting of CEOs of waste management companies across Punjab, has said that the work on implementing a uniform sanitation system in the province should be completed within the stipulated time frame.
