The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) led government in Punjab has given unprecedented freedom to its officers to perform their duties on merit and there is no political pressure on officers and departments. In a statement issued here on Monday, he said that the postings of the government employees were being done purely on merit. He said that the menace of nepotism had also been done away with, and no pressure was ever exerted on any officer for execution of his official duties. Usman Buzdar said that the officers were performing their duties under a system of chain of command. He regretted that the past rulers promoted a culture of humiliating officers based on their likes and dislikes, and the ego of some officers was hurt in the open. The PTI government valued honest and hardworking officers and those working hard for serving masses would be encouraged, added the CM. Politicking over train accident Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar has deplored the politicisation of the Daharki train accident by the opposition parties. In a statement issued on Monday, the CM condemned the elements using train accidents for their politics and advised the opposition to extend sympathies to the bereaved families. Regrettably, the impassive cabal was busy scoring points instead of sharing the pain and agony of the affected families, he added. It seems the opposition was obsessed with the unending lust for power. However, he added the nation had realised that this gang had no respect or honour for the lives of ordinary people. Using the train mischance for political purposes was a symbol of mean mentality; he added and stated the government fully shares the pain of the bereaved families. Emergency imposed in hospitals On the directions of Chief Minister Punjab Sardar Usman Buzdar, a state of emergency has been declared in Rahim Yar Khan and Sadiqabad hospitals to treat the injured passengers of the Deharki train accident.
