An important meeting of the secretaries posted in various departments of the South Punjab Secretariat was held at the Chief Minister's Office on Sunday.

“The officers posted in South Punjab Secretariat should deliver on public welfare projects and these projects should be completed on time,” the Punjab CM said.

Usman 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.
