In a significant move to cater to the housing needs of low-income residents, Punjab’s Chief Minister, Maryam Nawaz, has sanctioned housing schemes in six cities across the province.

The decision was made during a meeting chaired by Chief Minister Maryam Nawaz in Lahore. Stressing the urgency of the issue, she directed relevant authorities to promptly identify suitable locations for housing projects in Lahore, Multan, Faisalabad, Sialkot, Sargodha, and Rawalpindi.

Furthermore, the Chief Minister instructed officials to carefully consider all essential factors to ensure the ease and accessibility of these housing schemes for the low-income demographic in the specified cities.

Since assuming office as Punjab’s first female Chief Minister, Maryam Nawaz has shown a dedication to serving the public interest through various initiatives, such as Ramazan Nigehban and facilitating the purchase of E-bikes through installment plans.

Earlier, on March 18, Maryam Nawaz Sharif, as part of her agenda to improve public transport infrastructure, gave preliminary approval to initiate a metro bus project in three cities across Punjab.

The approval was granted during a meeting held in Lahore, where the presence of PML-N leader Muhammad Nawaz Sharif emphasized the party’s support for such developmental endeavors.

During the session, transportation projects in Lahore were thoroughly reviewed, with the Chief Minister also expressing interest in exploring the feasibility of an underground train project for the city.
