Punjab Information Minister Fayyazul Hassan Chohan on Friday defended provincial Chief Minister Usman Buzdar, who has recently come under criticism for his ‘below-par’ performance, saying Buzdar has been delivering on his responsibilities with ease.
While talking to media in Lahore, the provincial minister highlighted that the Punjab government, under the supervision of Buzdar, had provided tax relief of Rs56 billion in its recent provincial budget.
Claiming that international media has been commending Buzdar’s performance, Chohan said: “Buzdar is the only chief minister who has come to the forefront to serve the people of the country.”
Taking a jibe at the former leadership in the province, the federal minister said: “The so-called Khadim-i-Aala would stand in the rainwater wearing a fancy hat and carrying an umbrella, pretending to serve the people of the country.”
“The previous governments did nothing to deal with the monsoon,” he asserted.
The federal minister went on to add that Buzdar has made a constructive plan to deal with a rainwater crisis that threatens the province during the ongoing monsoon season.
“Usman Bazdar is serving the people at his own pace without making decisions in a hasty manner,” he added.
