(Web Desk) – Finally Punjab has got its new “Khadim-e-Aala” and this time not from Pakistan Muslim League - Nawaz (PML-N) but from Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI). Change really has come; tsunami has hit Punjab. The rhetoric that PML-N is in Punjab to stay for an unlimited time does not seem to be in existence anymore as Imran Khan’s player has taken the charge for the post of Chief Minister of Punjab.

Sardar Usman Buzdar belongs to one of the poorest areas of Punjab, PP-286 Taunsa Sharif. According to PTI chief Imran Khan, he is from the area where there is no electricity and other basic necessities. PTI wanted to take CM from one of the least developed areas, and it took it.

On the other side, there are a number of cases that surfaced after Buzdar’s nomination. New Chief Minister has even paid blood money for resolving them. Setting all these things aside, PTI still supported him and stood by him to end; now he is CM of the largest and the most affluent province of Pakistan.
