He said that he assures all the members of the Assembly and the people that transparency will be ensured in these projects. I will not allow anyone to take or give a commission on these projects. Governor Punjab further said that filtration plants would be set up in all provincial constituencies of Punjab without any political discrimination and clean drinking water would be provided to the people in the constituencies of the members of the coalition parties as well as the opposition parties. Chaudhry Muhammad Sarwar said that we do not believe in temporary solutions so we are taking steps to resolve the problems on a permanent basis. Opposition’s criticism of the government’s policies is their political compulsion but the public is well aware that Prime Minister Imran Khan has no personal or political agenda. They want the development and prosperity of the country and no obstacle will be tolerated in safeguarding the public interest, he reiterated.
