LAHORE:Punjab Local Government Minister Zeeshan Rafique has said that a uniform cleaning mechanism will be implemented across the Punjab province. He also resolved that no shortage of financial resources will be allowed for the “Suthra Punjab” programme.

While presiding over a meeting in the Civil Secretariat regarding the review of the progress on outsourcing the “Suthra Punjab” programme, he said that Punjab CM Maryam Nawaz has directed to extend the sanitation network to remote areas. “There should not be a single village where there is no sanitation staff available”, he directed. Special Secretary Aseya Gul and CEOs of waste management companies attended the meeting across Punjab. The minister while directing the CEOs for mapping all the rural areas within a fortnight figured out that updated data of the “Ab Gaon Chamkein Ge” may be used to introduce new sanitation standards. He said that all waste management companies should evaluate the potential contractors in each tehsil. “In the area where outsourcing is not possible, the concerned waste management company will execute the cleanliness drive”. Zeeshan further said that an effective monitoring system should be prepared in advance in the process of outsourcing.
