The minister led a meeting to talk about how the master plan for 11 districts in Punjab was coming along. During the meeting, he said that no new housing projects will be allowed in the green area, and those projects that are already using green areas without permission will be punished severely. Minister Murad also said that business zones or economic routes are important for boosting business and commerce in small towns. The minister said that this will help local people get jobs.
