Punjab Governor Muhammad Baleegh-ur-Rehman administered the oath to the newly inducted members.
In a statement, after rumours that the PML-N governor might not administer the oath to the PTI minister, Baleegh-ur-Rehman vowed to retain the democratic traditions and fulfil his constitutional and legal obligations.
PTI’s Omar Sarfaraz Cheema had refused to administer the oath to PML-N ministers, triggering a political crisis in the country’s political heartland.
At the swearing-in ceremony today, CM Elahi and other dignitaries were also present.
Congratulating the newly inducted ministers, Elahi told them to perform their responsibilities efficiently.
“It is hoped that the provincial ministers will work day and night to serve the people and meet the expectations of the people of Punjab.”
He advised them to spare no effort in serving the masses as the focus of the government is the welfare of the poor people. They will take all possible measures to give relief to the common man, Elahi said.
