He said he is rightly proud of our MPAs including our allied parties who discharged their right of legislation in befitting manner and shut the mouths of opponents through maximum legislation even took all opponents aback. He said credit of excellent legislation also goes to high values and traditions of our provincial assembly that fully helped us to successfully complete all process in most conducive and pleasant manner.
The Chief Minister said unfortunately in past the culture of legislation and its implementation was never strengthened at public level, which badly harmed public interest and played havoc with our social matters. He made it clear on part of the authorities that there is no space for any kind of mistake in the sensitive matters like legislation as the ultimate victims of it would be the people.
He said the objective of these measures is the provision of maximum relief to the people within the limited available resources.

However, he said he will become satisfied when people themselves will admit and acknowledge the fruits of all these changes and reforms.
