LAHORE, Jan 16 (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 03rd Jan, 2017 ) : Punjab Governor Malik Muhamamd Rafique Rajwana has said that public service requires selflessness and not power, while education frees a person from lust for power and authority.
Addressing the officers of the 7th post-induction course of Provincial Management Service (PMS) under the Management and Professional Development Department (MPDD) here Tuesday, he said that the PMS officers were like doctors, who treat wounds, while they address people's problems.
The governor said that redress of public grievances was the greatest manifestation of the PMS officers performance as the public servants, adding that PML-N's manifesto also guaranteed protection to people.
He said that the government officers played a vital role in achievement of goals of good governance and better public service. He said the government officers were supposed to ensure continuation of government policies and economic progress.
He said that the newly inducted officers must remember that they would have to face pro-active media and accountability by masses while fulfilling their duties. The governor also gave away certificates to officers, who participated in the training course. Earlier, Secretary MPDD Nadeem Irshad Kiani explained the pros and cons of the course.
