PTI MPAs Criticise CM Buzdar For Poor Govt Performance
Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar has received criticism from his party’s members of the provincial assembly (MPAs) at a Pakistan Tehteek-e-Insaf parliamentary party meeting on Monday, with the MPAs expressing dissatisfaction over the performance of the provincial government during the past 15 months.
According to a report in Dawn, the meeting was called to discuss legislative matters and local government elections that would be held in March 2020.
MPAs expressed complaints regarding the bureaucracy’s non-cooperation and non-resolution of genuine issues.
They added that the increase in prices had made people’s lives difficult and they were losing their jobs.
Some MPAs opined during the meeting that it would be very difficult for the PTI government to hold local government elections as its popularity had fallen. They demanded that the government should work to ensure relief to the masses.
While addressing the attendees of the meeting, Chief Minister Usman Buzdar said that the provincial government had made the decision to hold the village panchayat elections in March.
He added, “The Village Panchayat elections will be held on a non-party basis and the local government elections on a party basis in the next phase.”
Moreover, the CM assured MPAs that their pending work with the bureaucracy would be carried out at a faster pace.
