Chief Minister Usman Buzdar chaired a meeting at Multan Airport about Multan development package and law and order situation, here on Friday.
Addressing the meeting, the CM announced a new phase of development has been started and special funds have been allocated for Multan division.
The locals will not have to go to Lahore due to the establishment of the southern Punjab secretariat which is a boon for the people of backward areas, he asserted.
Meanwhile, he added that unjustified distribution of development funds has been stopped and the development of backward areas was given particular attention.
He directed that transparency and high quality of development projects should be ensured as no one will be allowed any defalcation.
The CM also directed that no stone should be left unturned to protect the life and property of the people. Indiscriminate action should be continued against hoarders, illegal profiteers and criminals and officers should go to the field to provide relief to the masses.
The rates of essential items in markets should be daily checked, the CM further directed.
ACS (South), Additional IG (South), Commissioner Multan and others attended the meeting.
