LAHORE: Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar took a drive in a number of areas of the metropolis to monitor the drainage process after heavy rainfall lashed different parts of Lahore.
In a video released by Dr Shahbaz Gill, the chief minister’s spokesperson, Buzdar is seen giving stranded people ride to safe location in his own car. The chief minister has directed WASA to immediately drain the rainwater, adding that he won’t tolerate any undue slackness.
The chief minister visited Davis Road, Simla Pahari, Lakshmi Chowk and Nicholson Road.
CM Buzdar also visited the office of Safe City Authority Office and monitored the drainage process. He expressed his regret that while the previous governments focused on making mega projects which were basically white elephants to garner attention, they chose to ignore basic issues like drainage.
