NAB’s summon no valid reason for dismissing Usman Buzdar as CM: Sarwar

Governor Punjab Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar Wednesday said the NAB’s summon to Chief Minister Usman Buzdar is no valid reason for dismissing him from his position. 

He said Buzdar is the chief minister and he will stay so. 

Addressing a Press conference in Governor House along with Punjab Aab-e-Pak Authority Chairman General Ahmad Nawaz Mela, Board Member Gohar Ejaz and Chief Executive Zahid Aziz, he said that the government will complete 820 RU and UF Water Filtration Plants to provide clean drinking water to people of Punjab.

Sarwar said they were ensuring merit and transparency in Punjab Aab-e-Pak Authority. 

“We will always be ready for accountability. We have not spent a single penny on Punjab Aab-e-Pak Authority so far. All the expenses have been borne by the Board Members. We will make PAPA a successful and one of the best institutions. PC-1 worth 5.5 Million rupees of Punjab Aab-e-Pak Authority is ready. Prime Minister Imran Khan, Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar and I are on the same page regarding the matter of clean drinking water. We will fulfil our promise of providing clean drinking water to masses.”

Governor Punjab said the Authority will collaborate with NGOs as well as international organisations for clean drinking water. He said that 820 RO Water Filtration Plants and 700 Water Supply Schemes will be completed in almost 1.5 years. 

He said there not a single recruitment has been made in Punjab Aab-e-Pak Authority so the matter of illegal recruitments is out of the question. 

Responding to political questions, he said that from the outset it is the policy of the PTI government that there will be no compromise on accountability and transparency. 

“We support transparent accountability and we are eliminating political interference from institutions.”

Responding to a question, he said that the incident that has happened outside the NAB office will be investigated. Action will be taken those responsible for this incident, he said.
