Prime Minister Imran Khan has sought details regarding continuous defeats of the party candidates in Punjab by-elections from Chief Minister Punjab Usman Buzdar.
During a meeting with Usman Buzdar in Lahore, the prime minister sought reasons behind the defeat of the party candidates in Punjab by-polls and tasked him to improve contacts with the general public.
“The next budget should carry public interest development projects,” the prime minister directed him besides also calling for bringing an end to unnecessary political intervention in institutions and district administrations.
“The state institutions should be in the easy approach of the public,” he said adding that the government should adopt policies that would enable the public to give priority to the PTI over any political party.

The sources privy to the matters discussed during the meeting said that the chief minister also conveyed to the prime minister regarding groupings within the party. “The prime minister assured him of taking key decisions after the budget,” they said.
