LAHORE: Prime Minister’s Advisor for Accountability and Home Lawyer Shehzad Akbar met with Chief Minister Usman Buzdar on Saturday and discussed with him on issues of common interest, politics and issues of importance.
The duo congratulated the newly elected chairman and vice chairman of the Senate on their victory.
Usman Buzdar and Shehzad Akbar also congratulated Prime Minister Imran Khan on the success of the government candidates in the Senate elections.
The two leaders strongly criticized the efforts of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) which allegedly made the institutions controversial.
Usman Buzdar promised that no one would be allowed to defame national institutions and those involved in such efforts were not people who hoped for the good of the country.
“We support our national institutions and will always support them.
The corrupt gang humiliates themselves by trying to do politics on non-issues, “he said.
“This gang has faced disgrace before and will meet the same fate in the future too,” he said adding that any evil gang designs would be thwarted.
Usman Buzdar said that it was his mission to eradicate corruptors and the Qabza mafia from Punjab and added that the state land worth billions of rupees had been vacated over the past two years apart from taking indiscriminate action against the Qabza Mafia, and that the crackdown would continue.
The public service process will be accelerated even more, he promised.
Shehzad Akbar said that respecting institutions is mandatory for all and targeting institutions under a specific agenda is a sad act.
Corrupt politicians have no future and frustrated opposition cannot deceive the people, he added.

The CM directed the relevant departments and authorities to take immediate action to resolve the issue.
Usman Buzdar said the government was determined to make Punjab an exemplary province in development and good governance.
For the first time, disadvantaged regions have been included in the mainstream under a joint development vision, he added.
Real change is being introduced in Punjab which Prime Minister Imran Khan has promised.
We don’t care about the opponent and believe in working hard, said Usman Buzdar, adding that no one can raise a finger at the transparency of the PTI government.

CM issued instructions related to administrative matters, controlling price increases, implementing SOPs related to the corona, further improving the solid waste management system in the city of Lahore and accelerating the pace of low-cost housing projects.
He ordered to take the necessary steps to deal with rising prices and said the government would not allow profiteers and hoarders to exploit people.
He said that the administrative machinery must ensure the availability of fixed-priced essential commodities on the market in addition to taking indiscriminate action against those who create artificial price increases.
He said that the government must work more efficiently to provide assistance to people.
The chief minister said that stopping the spread of the coronavirus was the government’s top priority.
Necessary restrictions in some cities have been put in place given the increasing number of coronavirus patients, he said, adding the government would continue the steps needed to safeguard the lives of its citizens.
CM ordered the use of all-out resources to improve the sanitation situation in cities including Lahore.
A comprehensive plan should be developed in this regard in addition to ensuring timely waste disposal, he added.
He said that the construction of low-cost housing projects was the flagship program of the Pakistani government of Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and all issues related to the project had to be brought up immediately.
CM says love, peace, brotherhood, unity and tolerance are the hallmarks of Punjab culture. In his message on Punjab Culture Day, he said that the purpose of carrying out the day is to promote love, brotherhood and unity.
The chief minister said that only developing countries promote their culture. He said Punjab culture has a unique place at the international level as well. The land of Punjab has the aroma of compassion, hospitality and kindness, he added.
