PESHAWAR: Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Minister for Local Government and Rural Development Faisal Amin Gandapur inspected various hygiene schemes during a surprise visit to Dera Ismail Khan last evening and assured people to resolve their problems on priority basis.
During the inspection of a sewerage scheme under Municipal Services Program (MSP) in Dera city, the locals pointed out some hardships they were facing upon which the minister contacted the concerned authorities on the spot and directed them to expedite the work on this important drainage project.
The Minister asked MSP authorities to ensure that not only the citizens benefit from this sanitation project in a timely and quality manner but also the movement of local people and traffic on the highways and bazars was restored properly.
Faisal Amin Gandapur, however, expressed satisfaction that under the MSP, most of the city’s drainage system would go underground and it would also enhance the beauty of the city roads, bazaars and streets.
