LAHORE: Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar on Monday said that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf had come into power with an agenda of public service and was committed to serve the people.

The PTI government has put an end to this practice of plunder and those who are responsible for corruption and inefficiency will have to be accountable. Indiscriminate accountability of the corrupt elements is necessary for national development, he added. “We do not have any other agenda like the past rulers, the foundations of the country were weakened with corruption during the past tenures while the PTI government has laid the foundation of a transparent Pakistan” he said. The corruption has been decreased and the ratio of transparency increased in the country under the leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan. We do not believe in slogans and claims and practical steps are taken for public service, he said. In fact, the government has achieved success at every level in a short span of time and midnight oil was burnt to come up to the expectations of the people, the chief minister concluded.
