By

Chief Minister Punjab Usman Buzdar has vowed “impartial action” against all those found negligent in their duties, a day after the country saw the deaths of more than 20 people stranded in their vehicles in snow-hit Murree.

Buzdal issued a statement on Twitter on Sunday, announcing that the Punjab government is taking a series of measures to develop permanent solutions to the long-term problems of tourist destinations.

He said that the first task of the government is to complete the rescue operation.

Thereafter, a “long consultative session” was held in Murree accompanied by a “detailed briefing”.

“Some important decisions have been taken so that with short term and long term solutions, a permanent solution to longstanding issues can be arrived at,” the chief minister said.
