Peshawar: KP Chief Minister Pervez Khattak has asked the federal and provincial govts of Sharif brothers to avoid arresting and using force against workers of rival political parties and dragging the state institutions into politics.

Addressing public rallies in village of Ziarat Kaka Sahib, Pirpai, Mulahan and Garhi Momin in his native Nowshera district, he said the federal government should tender apology to the nation for its mistakes and reopen the roads to prevent further hardships to the poor masses.

He regretted that using the security forces and police against the own people is a political blunder, he added. “Stop testing patience of the masses and remove containers from the roads”, the Chief Minister said while naming Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

Pervez Khattak urged the central government to restore fuel supply to petrol pumps to end the hardships of the people.  “Stop being cruel to the people and don’t push the masses to besiege your palace in Raiwind”, he said while referring to the family residence of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif in Lahore.

Asking the people to participate in the ‘Azadi March” he urged the participants to prepare to topple the government of the ‘’monarchs who he asserted product of dictatorship and rigging and committed atrocities against its own people’’.

Pervez Khattak said the devastation caused by the floods was the biggest problem of the residents of Peshawar, Nowshera and Charsadda districts.  He said the government had chalked out a comprehensive strategy to prevent floods and the consequent damages.  He said the government had planned to erect concrete embankments on both sides of the rivers in these districts with an estimated cost of Rs.4 billion to protect the villages from flood.

He said another problem of the masses was unemployment and his government had prepared an industrial and financial development strategy to provide jobs to the youth.  “Our economic policy will even attract the industrialists from Punjab to shift their factories and business here, “he added.  He said the government would establish industrial zones and would employ millions of people in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

The Chief Minister said the people had voted the PTI to power for a change.  He reiterated his government’s resolve to honour all the promises the PTI had made to the people. He said the provincial government would hold the local government elections once the process of the demarcations of the constituencies was completed.

“We will lay down the foundation of an exemplary local government system that the other provinces will also follow,” he added. He said the government had started implementing its energy policy under which small hydropower units were being set up to meet the requirements of the domestic consumers and industries respectively, he concluded.
