He inaugurated a filtration plant set up by his Sarwar Foundation at the Faisalabad Central Jail
Punjab Governor Chaudhry Sarwar visited the Faisalabad Central Jail Sunday to inaugurate a new water filtration plant. During his media talk, he refuted rumours of issues between him and PML-Q leaders.
His Sarwar Foundation set up the plant at the jail so that inmates have clean drinking water. The foundation also renovated the kitchen, opened a clinic, installed benches, painted the prison and planted several plants in line with the prime minister’s clean and green Pakistan initiative.
The initial target was providing 36 jails with clean water and medical facilities but now we have extended the project to 42 jails, including some district jails, he said.
When asked why the project was being undertaken by a private foundation rather than the government, Sarwar brushed aside the question, saying they were all on the same page. Explaining that the government can’t do everything on its own, he said. “We don’t have a magic wand to fix 70 years of issues in two months.”
The biggest issue the government is focusing on is accountability, according to him. It is also focusing on health and education and providing facilities for the people, he said.
It is my hope that we can help the people, he added. Ten plants will be inaugurated in one week – five in Faisalabad and five in Lahore, the governor explained.
When asked about a video in which PML-Q leaders Chaudhry Pervez Elahi and Housing Minister Tariq Bashir Cheema met with Jahangir Tareen to speak about 'controlling' Sarwar, he said that even families have some issues. There are no misunderstandings in the province, he said.
