“Our government will concentrate on providing relief to the poor people by creating an atmosphere conducive for reconstruction and development instead of wasting money on launching unnecessary mega projects and provision of employment opportunities in education and health sectors”, he said this while addressing a public meeting after inauguration work on construction of main road from Azakhel Payan GT Road to Cherat Cement Factory.

He told the audience that “we will help settle those problems of the people of which they were victim from day one”. He held out categorical assurance that uniform and balanced development policy would be vigorously pursued by his government across the province so that no area was left out and any segment of the society was uncovered.
The people’s money would be utilized judiciously on their welfare instead of wasting it on schemes involving corruption and commission.

The Chief Minister lashed at the policies of Wapda which he said are anti people and based on corruption. He said despite provision of funds for the electricity schemes, the Wapda authorities using delaying tactics in providing transformers and laying transmission lines. He also criticized the Wapda for carrying out massive load shedding in nook and corner of the province which was generating electricity more than its requirements.

He claimed that reduction in commission and establishing justice system in Thana and Patwar circles remained success stories of his government. The PTI mandated in the province for overcoming the chronic issues of corruption and commission and it was working day and night in this regard to bring radical change in the governance system.

He said that ‘lootmar’ was rampant in the state institutions before their government in the province was formed, saying government job were to be sold and thirty percent advance commission on uplift project was a routine matter.
Similarly no attention was paid on uniform development in the province, he said adding, we put on right track the nation building departments like C&W, Irrigation, PHED, Local Government, Education, Health, Excise, Home and police departments. He told the people that August 14 Azadi march was not for derailing democracy, adding it was in the interest of the country that Imran Khan should become PM as he could get rid the country of the present mess.
