LAHORE - Chief Minister Punjab Shahbaz Sharif has urged the public representatives to monitor Sasti Roti Scheme the way they monitor their household expenses. Talking to public representatives on Monday before his departure to Hujra Shah Muqeem, district Okara, the CM said that a comprehensive strategy had been evolved to remove flaws in the Sasti Roti Scheme, and for this purpose not only committees had been set up at Mohalla level but participation of people had also been ensured in the scheme for the purpose of transparency and provision of Sasti Roti to the poor. He said that providing Sasti Roti to the poor was also a form of worship and the provincial government would make all-out efforts to uphold the rights of the deserving persons. He said that people who were criticising the Sasti Roti project had nothing to do with the welfare of the people and they never raised their voice against those who plundered national resources, got their loans waived off and robbed the Punjab Bank. He said that the poor knew these faces very well who disapproved of pro-poor welfare projects. The CM said that the Punjab government was committed to serving the masses and it would continue this welfare project. Public representatives on this occasion assured the CM that they would work with him shoulder-to-shoulder for the success of Sasti Roti Scheme and make all-out efforts to uphold rights of the people. They paid tribute to the CM for continuing Sasti Roti Scheme, setting up Youth Employment Fund and allocating record funds for the development of the province. Meanwhile, CM Shahbaz Sharif visited Hujra Shah Muqeem, district Okara, to condole the death of wife of Syed Ijaz Ali Shah Gilani. She was the mother of former district nazim Syed Asad Ali Shah Gilani and cousin of Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani. The Chief Minister offered Fateha for the departed soul and prayed for courage and strength of the bereaved family to bear this irreparable loss with fortitude. Former minister Syed Afzaal Ali Shah Gilani, MPA Syed Raza Ali Shah Gilani and a large number of locals were also present on the occasion.
