He said that enforcement of land utilisation policy should be ensured after its early approval and the settlement process should be completed as soon as possible in DG Khan Division. He said a transparent system of promoting farming would be introduced by giving state land on lease.

Child labour could be eliminated through consistent efforts and the citizens should also realise their responsibility in this regard, he said.
