Additional Chief Secretary (South) Zahid Akhtar Zaman and Additional IG Police (South) Inam Ghani called on Chief Minister Punjab Sardar Usman Buzdar at his office here on Wednesday.
The CM expressed good wishes for them adding that the PTI government has made postings on merit and the Southern Punjab Secretariat will provide necessary relief to the locals.
The establishment of the Southern Punjab Secretariat has fulfilled a promise made with the people, he added.
The Chief Minister further said that 33 per cent development budget has been earmarked for southern Punjab and 1.5 billion rupees are reserved for the Southern Punjab Secretariat.
The problems of the people will be solved at the grassroots and the citizens will not have to go to Lahore with the start of the Southern Punjab Secretariat, he said.
Your posting is an honour and every work should be done on merit, he added.
The CM pointed out that no pressure should be tolerated for any wrongdoing and duty should be performed honestly. Similarly, you should keep your offices’ doors open to the people as the Southern Punjab Secretariat is an important development which would be conspicuous to the people when they will get relief, he said.
The officers should come up to the expectations of the people and you should work hard to provide relief to the citizens at their doorsteps, the CM concluded.
