Chief Minister Punjab Sardar Usman Buzdar has banned his ministers, secretaries and other government officials from holding Iftar parties on government expenses.
A notification has been issued in this regard.
The notification issued from the CM Punjab reads, “We are the custodian of national resources and austerity is the fundamental part of governmental policies.”
The statement also said that the government wanted to assure people that their money will only be spent on public welfare.
The latest decision from the government is a good one promoting an austerity drive which was long forgotten amid the economic crisis.
