LAHORE, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 12th Sep, 2018 ) :Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar on Wednesday said speedy development of deprived and less-developed areas was priority agenda of the government.

He added that provision of basic facilities to remote areas would be ensured in accordance with the vision of Prime Minister Imran Khan.

"We will have to work day and night to materialise the dream of welfare of the masses," he said while presiding over a special meeting held to review development schemes of the province, including DG Khan.

The chief minister asked the administration to work actively to serve people. He added, claims were made about the development of deprived areas in the past but no practical step was taken in this regard. He said action would be initiated against those submitting wrong data about development schemes.

The chief minister was of the opinion that the situation of health, education and other basic facilities was deteriorated and facilities were, in fact, negligible in remote and tribal areas of the division.

He said, a filtration plant was necessary at every union council to provide clean drinking water to people and Punjab Bank should also establish soft branches in the tribal areas.

Meanwhile, availability of ladies and children's parks were also necessary in small cities and towns. He directed that Names of health councils should be displayed outside the hospitals and state-of-the-art gynae and ICUs should be established in all teaching hospitals of the province, including DG Khan.

The secretaries of housing, higher education, schools education, health, P&D and home departments along with other officials attended the meeting.
