DERA GHAZI KHAN: Chief Minister Usman Buzdar says the conspiracies (against his government) will again be foiled and the journey of development will continue as the PTI government in Punjab is continuously in contact with the people regarding development projects.

Expressing a resolve to go to every city of the province to resolve the public problems, he says engaging with the common man helps one understand the ground realities and he is in constant contact with the people.

“I belong to the people and, even my life is available for service to humanity,” Mr Buzdar asserted while speaking to the citizens and assembly members at the Circuit House here on Friday.

“Funds for south Punjab will not be used for any other purpose and this money will be spent on the public welfare.”
