Chitral Times Report
Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Pervez Khattak has ordered
the C&W department to transfer all those field officers who did not
initiate development schemes of the current financial year and post
them at the provincial headquarters office. He also ordered
transfer of Executive Engineer, C&W Mardan for his failure in
initiation development schemes of current year.
During his meeting with a 22-member delegation of district Mardan,
the Chief Minister was astonished and annoyed over the disclosure
that C&W Mardan did not start development schemes despite the fact
that end of current financial year is approaching now. The
delegation called on the Chief Minister under the leadership of MPA
Zahid Durrani. Members provincial Assembly Iftikhar Mashwani and
secretary Local Government Jamil Ahmad were also present.
Responding to other problems and demands , presented by the
delegation, the Chief Minister directed the Deputy Commissioner,
Mardan to arrange repair of power transformers from the district
council funds as expecting WAPDA for timely repair would be useless
effort, he added.
He also directed the Secretary Local Government to approach the
Election Commission for establishing separate polling stations for
female voters in forthcoming Local Government elections.
In response to the demands for providing civic facilities in Mardan,
Pervez Khattak said that all powers for such amenities have been
devolved to local councils which would come into being after the
Local Government elections. He said that present provincial
government has established a smooth, efficient and transparent
system for ensuring provision of justice and rights of the people
in accordance with manifesto of Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf. He added
that under such system it would be impossible for politicians to
make any undesirable and negative interference which could deprive
people of their rights. He said that all segments of society will
enjoy equal opportunities for their progress and prosperity under
this system. He told that political influence and nepotism in
recruitments against vacant post had also been eliminated by an
automated system of appointments, and all appointments were being
made on the basis of qualification and NTS test.
