The Punjab government has decided to hold Sikh conventions in connection with the 550th birthday anniversary of the founder of Sikhism Baba Guru Nanak Dev and the Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar has accorded approval to it. The first convention will be held at Governor’s House Lahore while the next huddle will be arranged in Nankana Sahib district and Sikh community, from across the world, will attend it.
Chief Minister Usman Buzdar has directed to make best arrangements for the conventions while every possible facility will be provided to the Sikh visitors. He said that Rs 150 million have been spent on repair and maintenance of roads in Nankana Sahib and this would facilitate the Sikh pilgrims visiting their holy place.
He said that foundation stone of Baba Guru Nanak University in Nankana Sahib is a self-evident proof of religious tolerance and harmony, as the government of Pakistan is providing all sorts of facilities to the Sikhs and other religious minorities.
Talking to different delegations of the people, here Thursday, the CM Usman Buzdar said that direction of resources has been turned towards backward areas as the far-flung localities remained deprived of development due to the wrong priorities of the past rulers.
“The country was deviated from its destination due to wrong policies of the past rulers and enmity was made with the nation by wasting national resources on exhibitory projects,” the CM said, adding: “The past rulers, altogether, ignored the fundamental problems of the people who yearned for their basic needs.”
Moreover, the Punjab government has decided to devise the latest monitoring system for early solution of public complaints and Chief Minister Usman Buzdar has given approval to it.
