Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday warned the leaders of opposition parties that the PTI-led government will not back down from holding them accountable for their alleged corrupt practices during their respective tenures.
The premier, while addressing a ceremony in Lahore to highlight the performance of Punjab government in the first 100 days, mentioned that the corrupt practices of former rulers have ruined the economy of the country.
He said the PTI government will work for the betterment and development of Punjab by ensuring the rights of people and utilising all available resources to uplift the living standard of masses. “Major reforms will be brought in various sectors to extend relief to general public,” he said.
“In past, half of the provincial budget was spent on development of Lahore city alone. Even funds for the labour community were diverted to Lahore,” the premier said as he promised to abolish that practice.
Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar along with several provincial and federal ministers attended the ceremony.
