Special Assistant To Chief Minister On Information Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan Has Said That The Government Is Committed Materializing The Dream Of A Digital Pakistan Into A Reality. Addressing a press conference here Saturday, she said that institutions are being redesigned with modern technology for creating ease in the lives of the people.
Flanked by Senior Member Board of Revenue (SMBR) Babar Hayat Tarar, Dr Firdous said that Chief Minister Usman Buzdar is making serious efforts for implementing the vision of PM Imran Khan and his efforts are yielding positive results. She said the government has created ease in the lives of the citizens by providing easy access to land record and other revenue matters. The government is determined to provide the due rights of the people at their doorstep, she said.
She said that in order to change the system it is necessary to change the laws and only a bold and brave leadership like Imran Khan can take such decisions and introduce historical reforms. The government is taking practical measures on a war footing basis to change the corrupt system and introduce a transparent system, she said.
People were hoodwinked in the name of politics and the former rulers were remained busy in flourishing their business however, relief is being provided to the people by introducing new reforms and legislation, she further said.
Dr Firdous said the PTI government is committed to fulfilling its promise of transfer of power to the grass-root level through the local government system as it will ensure resolution of peoples’ problems at their doorstep. She said that a few ‘numbardars’ from Jati Umrah paralyzed the whole service delivery system. These elements used to dictate others for their vested political and personal interests. However, the incumbent government is committed to getting the country rid of such corrupt people.
She alleged that both PPP and PML-N have joined hands over the Senate election in Punjab and the horse-trading has been transferred to Islamabad where Asif Zardari will engineer the Senate election results. PTI believes that transparent election is the need of the hour and will make every effort to restore the respect of vote.
To a question, the SACM said that Maryam considered Hamza a worker, whereas she thought of herself as a leader. It seems that the Sharif family will split into two groups of Maryam and Hamza and the tall claim of holding a ‘Long March’ has met a natural death.
SMBR said in line with the vision of Prime Minister Imran Khan and under the guidance of Chief Minister Usman Buzdar, Board of Revenue (BoR) is reviving the old traditions of revenue services by introducing historical institutional reforms based on information technology and committed to providing transparent and prompt delivery of basic services to the people.
He further stated that open-courts are being held on the first working day of every month to provide prompt services to the people at Tehsil and District level. He informed that so far 14,44,39 acres of land, worth more than Rs425 billion has been retrieved from squatters.
He said a revenue academy is being established and new induction is being made to overcome the shortage of revenue staff. Further, mobile van services have been introduced for which 20 mobile arazi record vans equipped with requisite technology are providing land record services in far-flung areas. The overseas arazi record centres have also been established in Pakistan embassies in the US, UK, Saudi Arabia and UAE to facilitate expatriate Pakistanis, he said.
