He directed the officers concerned to speed up development works on the Hawksbay Scheme saying it should be ensured that all basic and standardised facilities be provided there and transparency should be maintained there. He said his government was trying its best to provide standardised living facilities to the people of Sindh. Secretary Local Government Lala Fazal-ur-Rehman.
