The Cabinet meeting was headed by Chief Minister of Punjab (CM) Usman Buzdar. The ministers of the province, the advisers, the special staff, the Chief Secretary and the high officers were all present.

The CM endorsed the allocation of property to Cholistan's landless farmers. A commission was assigned to monitor the allocation method to guarantee transparency on this front. The Pakistan Petroleum Limited has recently chosen to perform oil exploration activities on land in Sadiqbad tehsil in Cholistan.

In addition, the government agreed to drop water taxes for this season in 55 "calamity-hit" villages flooded with monsoon rain. Likewise, the provincial govt would provide economic support for those peasants whose crops were damaged recently because of excessive rainfall.

CM Buzdar has also announced the province's tourism strategy with the objective of promoting a country's ' smooth picture ' internationally. He added that attempts were ongoing on this front to encourage the private sector.
