Chief Minister of Punjab Shahbaz Sharif
Access to safe drinking water is the basic human right. Major chunk of the population in the Punjab province is deprived of safe drinking water. My government has accorded the highest priority to provide safe drinking water to marginalized segments of society in rural and peri-urban areas of Punjab province. The present regime is striving its best to cater the needs of the peoples. Saaf Pani Project of Punjab Government is a flagship initiative and on its completion in next three years, more than 50 million population in 144 tehsils of the province will have a sustained access to the safe drinking water. Furthermore, the Rs. 70 billion project will be a watershed in eliminating water-borne diseases, which added to the financial woes of the rural populace. For this purpose, Punjab Saaf Pani Company has been established to with the mandate to develop, design, plan and execute projects for the provision of safe drinking water solutions depending upon the nature of contamination across the province. We have built a new team of professionals, experts and consultants to fast-track the implementation of the project. This project of huge public importance has my personal commitment and we have performance audit on regular basis. In the first phase, more than 80 water filtration plants have been installed in South Punjab while feasibility and survey reports in other areas of the province have been completed. We are inviting leading international firms and companies to invest in this project and meet international standards in provision of community-based water supply solutions to the marginalized segments of society. We are in contact with Chinese and other international companies for this purpose. This will certainly help the nation in achieving the competitive edge in the international arena. As public health is inextricably linked with the provision of potable water, my government is committed to effectively discharging its responsibilities. Like other manifestation, this initiative will also be quoted as a success story aimed at the public service in the annals of the history. We have a fast growing economy, vast human capital and fast changing lifestyles can only be materialized with the help of mega projects, which will play a vital for prosperous and developed province. Though the task is very daunting but my government is blessed with the acumen to overcome such challenges. I am determined to serve the peoples of the province and this project will be completed within stipulated time-frame.
Mian Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif.
