Govt believes in equitable distribution of provincial resources: Buzdar


LAHORE: Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar has said that the provincial government believes in equitable distribution of available resources.

In a statement issued here on Monday, Usman Buzdar said that the rights of people of South Punjab have been abused in past but it is now time for compensation.

He assured that funds allocated for South Punjab will neither be used in any other project nor to any other city or province as Punjab cabinet has accorded approval to this decision.

The Punjab chief minister said that the incumbent government has allocated 35 percent in development budget for South Punjab.

He said in previous tenure, deprivation of South Punjab extolled but it is for sure that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government will fulfill the promises made to the people and will complete sustainable development in southern Punjab.
