LAHORE: Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Bazdar is not happy with the performance of South Punjab Secretariat as he strongly reprimanded the concerned officers for not resolving the public issues on an urgent basis, Pakistan Today leant on Sunday.
An important meeting of the secretaries posted in various departments of the South Punjab Secretariat was held at the Chief Minister’s Office.
The chief minister asked the concerned secretaries to take effective steps to resolve the public issues immediately and warned that strict action will be taken against those responsible for negligence and delay in projects.
“The officers posted in South Punjab Secretariat should deliver on public welfare projects and these projects should be completed on time,” the CM said.
Buzdar said he will continue to encourage honest officers. “I will not compromise on the quality of the projects and will ensure third-party monitoring and transparency also,” he added.
He told the South Punjab bureaucracy that his government has made a separate South Punjab Secretariat so the people should not have to come to Lahore for the redressal of their problems.
The secretaries of health, finance, planning and development, local government, housing, urban development and public health engineering, agriculture, livestock and dairy development, services and general administration, law, construction and communications, irrigation, education, and forests departments were present in the meeting.
An additional secretary of the home department also attended the meeting.
