Members of the Punjab Assembly also called on Chief Minister Punjab Sardar Usman Buzdar at the CM’s Secretariat and congratulated him for presenting people, farmers, labourers, industrialists and employees a friendly budget. They were of the view that under the leadership of Chief Minister Usman Buzdar, the Punjab government has given a comprehensive roadmap for the sustainable development of the province. The Annual Development Program of Rs. 560 billion will usher a new era of progress and prosperity in the province. They said that CM’s vision for composite development is a good omen as a separate development package for each district will redress the grievances and deprivations of respective areas. The Chief Minister said that development is the right of all districts of Punjab especially the backward ones and no city or area will remain deprived of this right. Former rulers utilized development funds of backward areas in their cities of choice. The composite developments were totally ignored with/by unjustifiable distribution of funds. Wrong policies and self-exhibitory projects have created a clear division between backward and developed districts. He further stated that the incumbent government has eradicated this injustice and put the country on the road to progress and development. The present government has taken several steps for the welfare of the people. Simplifying governmental affairs has significantly reduced its spending. Our direction is right and the intentions are good. Those who met with Chief Minister included Nazir Ahmad Khan, Raza Hussain Bukhari, Raja Yawar Kamal Khan, Sardar Aftab Akbar Khan, Muhammad Saleem Akhtar and Mian Tariq Abdullah.
