Prime Minister Imran Khan has approved the establishment of an authority to provide clean drinking water in Punjab.

The premier chaired a high level meeting at Chief Minister Office in Lahore on Sunday. Senior officials including Governor Chaudhry Sarwar, Chief Minister Usman Buzdar and Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Political Affairs Naeemul Haq attended the meeting.

PM Khan also met the Punjab governor during a separate meeting earlier in the day. During the meeting, the PM Khan issued directives to ensure the availability of clean drinking water to the people of the province. “Legislation will soon be expedited to form the water authority,” he assured.

PM Khan also held a one-on-one meeting with the chief minister, who briefed him about  the status of ongoing projects in the province.

In another development, the premier took notice of the hike in gas bills and directed Federal Minister for Petroleum and Natural Resources Ghulam Sarwar Khan to conduct an inquiry into the matter. “It is inappropriate to shift the additional burden of gas prices to consumers,” he said in a statement.
