LAHORE: Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar in a statement expressed his determination for the real development of Lahore by 2021 and said no need was overlooked to beautify the great city and heart of Punjab.
The chief minister said the government would not fool people by launching its own projection and exhibition projects.
According to him, 2021 will bring good news to the community. The Punjab government, according to Prime Minister Imran Khan’s vision, has started to implement an agenda for equitable development of all Punjab cities, including Lahore.
The year 2021 will bring a lot of happiness to the homeless as the Punjab government launched an unprecedented project in the housing sector in which 35,000 apartments will be built on 8,000 canals of land.
In the first phase, 4,000 apartments are being built in the city of LDA and the project will cost Rs40 billion.
The prime minister has directed to complete the initial housing project process at the earliest.
His current interest in trolleybuses in the city has requested a report from the transportation department on this project.
This project will result in a reduction in visible environmental pollution as well as introduce positive changes in transportation culture as well as eradicate smog from the city.
This is the main reason the government is considering launching this project in other cities as well.
On instructions of the chief minister and according to his vision of an equal development, multibillion-rupee projects were launched in Lahore.
To provide modern and quality healthcare facilities, the state-of-the-art thousand-bed hospital on Ferozpur Road will prove to be a gift to Lahor residents of the incumbent government.
Two overhead bridges and two underpasses will be built to ensure smooth flow of traffic in Lahore.
The project for the construction of a modern bus terminal in Thokar Niaz Baig is starting. Likewise, 10 underground water tanks will be constructed for the timely storage and drainage of rainwater.
Usman Buzdar said the government intends to bring abandoned areas in the past on par with other cities.
He said that despite spending billions of rupees in the near future, a large part of Lahore’s population is still not benefiting from development.
He said that spending the state treasury without determining the real problem was the same as wasting national resources.
He said the PTI government had a clear vision to solve the settlement problems.
