Int’l Day Of Politics Chief Minister Punjab Sardar Usman Buzdar has said the purpose of the international cooperatives movement is to jointly work for collective wellbeing while getting rid of the forces of exploitation. In his message, the CM said a revolution can be brought in the agriculture sector through cooperative movement. The role of cooperative societies has remained commendable in the agriculture and housing sectors; he added and appreciated the provision of residential facilities to the needy people and the distribution of loans among farmers through cooperative societies. However, there is a need to reinvigorate the cooperatives movement; he maintained and regretted that the past governments did not perform sufficiently to highlight the strong role of cooperative societies. It was enmity with the farmers but the PTI-led government has taken several steps to revamp cooperative societies because their role is very important in strengthening the agri economy, the CM added. The CM said the Punjab Provincial Cooperative Bank Ltd is being revamped for strengthening the national economy. The government will promote the cooperative movements by activating the cooperatives department and it will be provided with every sort of assistance, the CM assured. Agri and economic self-reliance targets can also be achieved by activating the cooperatives movements and this day demands that such activities should be further promoted at the grassroots, concluded the CM.
