LAHORE - Marking a significant gesture on Independence Day, the Caretaker Punjab government extended a substantial gift to rural communities by initiating a comprehensive urban-style cleaning initiative across Punjab’s villages.

During his address at the Qila Sharif ceremony, the chief minister highlighted that this pioneering program was set to revolutionize village life in Punjab. “For the first time in the province’s history, villages will receive cleaning personnel and facilities akin to those in cities.

The program further includes the provision of modern machinery at the Union Council level for enhancing village sanitation”, the CM explained.
