LAHORE:Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar has said that work had been started to create new districts and tehsils on administrative grounds.

During a meeting with Chairman CM Complaints Cell Sargodha Division Hassan Inam Paracha, the chief minister said that the request to grant status of district to Bhalwal Tehsil would be reviewed. He stressed that the incumbent government was delivering instead of making tall claims. Truth and honesty had prevailed in the Sialkot by-poll, he said, adding that the PTI’s continued success in the AJK and Sialkot elections showed public trust in the government policies. The people were fed up with the anti-state narrative and election results had proved that there was no room for looters in the country’s politics, the chief minister said and advised the opposition to shun negative politics after repeated defeats.

The opponents were unnerved after this defeat, he said and added such elements had been ousted from the political arena and their politics of promoting personal agenda by spreading chaos had also died down.

The chief minister said the government had started work on mega projects to develop the Sargodha division and a separate development package had been designed for every district.

Similarly, different projects had been accorded approval, including Salam to Sargodha road, Bhera to Malakwal road, Miani to Pakhowal road, Alipur to Thathi Wallana road by the government. He announced that schools would also be upgraded in the division.

KABIRWALA: The chief minister on Thursday paid a surprise visit to Kabirwala and inspected various areas of the city. He directed to improve the cleanliness situation and stressed that departments concerned would have to fulfill their responsibilities in this regard. He also directed to complete repair and maintenance of roads at the earliest, adding that a comprehensive district development package would be chalked out for Khanewal District.

The development schemes would start in small cities like Kabirwala, Jehanian and Mian Channu to ensure composite development, he said. “I will personally monitor development schemes under the district development package and no compromise will be made on quality of work,” he emphasised.

Seeks report: Usman Buzdar sought a report from Sheikhupura RPO about murder of a child in the Habibabad area of Pattoki. He ordered arresting the culprits without any delay. He also

extended sympathies to the bereaved heirs and promised provision of justice to them.
