Syed Azfar Ali Nasir, the interim Punjab Auqaf and Religious Affairs Minister ordered the Auqaf Department to install cameras to watch cash boxes at 72 shrines it manages throughout the Rawalpindi district on Thursday. The department must then provide a report to the ministry by the end of the month.
These instructions were given by the interim minister at a meeting that the commissioner, deputy commissioners, and other officials were present for in the commissioner's office.
Officials claim that the Auqaf Department owns 107 properties, including mosques, waqf lands, and shrines. A committee was formed to transfer the remaining properties into the department's name while some of these properties were already in the department's name.
They claimed that once the procedure was finished, more money would be made from the shrines and used to fund tourist amenities like security.
In light of the approaching monsoon season, the minister also requested that Water and Sanitation Agency (Wasa) finish de-silting all drains by June 30. In light of the monsoon, Wasa Managing Director Muhammad Tanveer stated that preparations have been finished.
Leh Nullah and 11 other drains in the garrison city would be cleaned thanks to funding given by the Punjab government, according to him. He promised that the project, which was underway from Katarina Bridge to Murree Road, will be finished by June 30.
The official stated that "modern winch machines for the first time" were being used to assist in the cleaning process. He stated that during the monsoon season, field staff members' vacations would be postponed and they would labor nonstop to prevent flooding.
There will be five flood response units established in the city at Liaquat Bagh, Moti Mahal, Commercial Market, Sardar Bagh, and Khayaban-i-Sir Syed, all of which will have field personnel and heavy gear. He added that Wasa possesses heavy equipment such as water bowsers, dewatering sets, winch machines, and scrubber and jetting machines.
Speaking at the event, the acting minister explained that the chief minister had given particular orders for evaluating the work of government agencies.
To prevent any delays in the job of promoting public welfare, efforts will be made to resolve the issues faced by the government departments during this time. He stated that through efficient monitoring, the government wanted to raise individual performance.
The commissioner stated that work on the big projects was progressing quickly in this instance. He stated that the hiring process for consultants for the Rawalpindi Ring Road was also finished.
The minister also gave the deputy commissioner of Rawalpindi instructions to start an operation to remove encroachments. Anti-encroachment efforts have been started in eight significant bazaars in Rawalpindi with the help of shopkeepers, it was announced at the meeting.
The provincial minister announced changes to reduce the usage of shopping bags, including a ban on bags weighing less than 75 grams and an encouragement of plastic bag recycling.
417 filtration facilities have been made "functional" in the Rawalpindi division, it was announced at the conference.
Similarly to this, the upgrade to the Pirwadhai General Bus Stand was almost finished and would offer passengers the "best travel facility," according to the briefing delivered to the minister.
The Slaughter House, IT Hub, Gymkhana, GT Road beautifying project, tiny dams, and graveyard projects were also ongoing in Rawalpindi.
Wah General Hospital has established a 50-bed rehabilitation facility that offers free services to drug users.
The minister was informed that 16,000 plants had been planted in various institutions as part of a plantation program while receiving a briefing on the colleges.
