LA­HORE: Pun­jab Chief Min­is­ter Muham­mad She­hbaz Sharif has said live­stock and dairy de­vel­op­ment sec­tor has a vast po­ten­tial and de­vel­op­ment of this sec­tor on solid ba­sis can re­sult in so­cio-eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment and cre­ation of job op­por­tu­ni­ties. He said im­me­di­ate mea­sures were needed for the pro­mo­tion of live­stock and dairy de­vel­op­ment sec­tor so that full ben­e­fit could be taken from the po­ten­tial in this sec­tor and so­cio-eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment of ru­ral pop­u­la­tion could be en­sured.

He was ad­dress­ing a meet­ing through video link at Civil Sec­re­tariat, on Wed­nes­day, which con­sid­ered var­i­ous mea­sures and pro­pos­als for the pro­mo­tion of live­stock and dairy de­vel­op­ment sec­tor on solid foun­da­tions. The Chief Min­is­ter said a ma­jor­ity of ru­ral pop­u­la­tion of Pun­jab is linked with live­stock and dairy de­vel­op­ment sec­tor and there is a need to im­part mod­ern train­ing to ru­ral pop­u­la­tion so that pro­duc­tion could be in­creased. He said in or­der to in­crease pro­duc­tion of live­stock, the pro­gram for skill de­vel­op­ment of ru­ral pop­u­la­tion should ef­fec­tively be im­ple­mented and no ef­fort should be spared for achiev­ing the de­sired re­sults.
