The Punjab government is working in the right direction and the livestock sector will also be transformed according to the vision of the prime minister, he said.

The chief minister disclosed that a number of new laws and amendments were part of the implementation of PM Khan’s 100-day agenda that was being followed by the government.

“We are thankful to him [Imran Khan] for his sincere guidance. My team will set new records of public welfare by burning the midnight oil,” he added.
