Lahore, June 15, 2021 (PPI-OT): Chief Minister Punjab Sardar Usman Buzdar has said the new budget will usher in an era of development and prosperity in the province. In a statement, the CM said a record development budget valuing Rs.560 billion has been announced, recording a 66 per cent increase. Rs.25 billion have been allocated for mega projects through a public-private partnership, he stated.
He said the universal health insurance programme is a flagship initiative of the PTI government to provide free health insurance to the whole of the population in Punjab. Meanwhile, a 10 per cent increase has been made in salaries and pensions along with a 25 per cent special allowance for grade 1 to 19 employees, he added. Meanwhile, the opposition’s undemocratic conduct in assembly was inappropriate as it has nothing to speak against the government. In fact, the opposition does not want the people to prosper, the CM added.
