These politicians, he said, even put the burden of debts on our coming generation adding during past two regimes heavy debts of Rs 23000 billion were acquired.

The CM continued that people got rid of such corrupt politicians by joining hands with the Prime Minister Imran Khan. The country, he hoped, would be freed of foreign debts under the leadership of the Prime Minister. "We will leave a better and prosperous Pakistan for our next generations".

He said Prime Minister Imran Khan, rather than thinking of next elections, was concerned for the future of our coming generations and his government was trying the best to provide maximum relief and facilities to its people.

The incumbent government, he said, despite difficult times initiated several people welfare programs including Sehat Card and Kissan Card, adding, soon education Cards would also be issued to the people.

The Federal Government, would soon introduce Naya Pakistan Card, he said adding, under Ehsas Ration Program registration of deserving families was underway. The provincial government would provide Rs 13.5 billion for this program.

The Chief Minister expressed the resolve that not a single penny of the nation would be wasted and pledges made with the people would be honored.

Elimination of corruption from the society was our prime focus, he said and urged people to support the government by identifying the corrupt elements.
