Provincial Law Minister Raja Basharat and Minister for Public Prosecution Chaudhry Zaheer Ud Din called on Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar at his office on Thursday and apprised him about their departmental performance and pace of reforms. Talking on the occasion, CM Usman Buzdar said that public service was the main agenda of the government while departmental reforms have created ease for the public. The fruits of development were reaching every district under the unprecedented development programme, he added. He said the archaic culture of unfair distribution of development funds had been eradicated. In the previous era, development funds were spent on personal likes and dislikes, he regretted. In Naya Pakistan, every penny was being spent honestly on the people. He said that the opponents wanted to stop the journey of development however these elements have failed at every occasion. Usman Buzdar said that the government was moving in the right direction as it was working to resolve the problems of the people. Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar on Thursday distributed cheques and certificates among media graduates of the Chief Minister’s internship programme at his office. Provincial Minister Rai Taimoor Bhatti, SACM Hasaan Khawar, DGPR and others were also present. Addressing the ceremony, the CM announced that more employment opportunities would be created for the youth on merit. The candidates would be given a two-year age relaxation to apply for the government jobs, he added. It was sanguine that the PTI-led government devised the largest development budget of 740 billion rupees, he said adding the district development package of 360 billion rupees would ensure balanced development in the province. The Chief Minister said the government was determined to improve the lot of the common man and announced to expand the scope of the internship programme as the knowledge of communication skills and media management techniques, as well as research on the latest media trends was the need of the hour. This programme was designed to sensitize the media graduates about the latest trends of media and communication techniques; he maintained and added that Pakistan’s youth was known for its talent and abilities everywhere. The DGPR department was playing a valuable role in sensitizing the general public about the vision and performance of the government, the CM commented and asked the media persons to give importance to objectivity as they were duty-bound to precisely present facts.
