F.P. Report

PESHAWAR: Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Mahmood Khan has reiterated the commitment of his government to go all out to address the issues and mitigate the sufferings of all the newly merged districts including South Wazirstan.

He regretted that certain so called Pashtoon leaders were doing politics using the name of Pashtoons for their political gains which he added could not be sincere for the development of Pashtoon nation. “The people of newly merged districts should stay satisfied and turn a deaf ear to the anti merger propaganda of the so called pashtoon politicians.

The government of this province and the Prime Minister of Pakistan are also Pashtoon and they are well aware about theirs issues. We took the responsibility and will ensure all out efforts to materialized the merger”, he added.

He was addressing a mammoth public gathering in Wana Wazirstan. Prime Minister Imran Khan also addressed the public gathering while Federal Defense Minister Pervez Khattak, MNA Ali Amin Gandapur, Advisor to Chief Minister on merged districts Ajmal Wazir and others also attended.

The Chief Minister said that certain so called Pashtoon leaders were doing politics on the name of Pashtoons for vested interests and political gains but will never succeed because the politics on the name of Pashtoon was over.

The Chief Minister said that both the governments at provincial and federal level had already taken the responsibility to bring the newly merged districts into the national stream of development and prosperity. Huge amount of resources had already been allocated and a practicable developmental strategy had also been evolved for the purpose.

Mahmood Khan said politics on the name of Pashtoons is far from reality and is based on a farce mindset with no political future. He stated that so called Pashtoon leaders should understand the fact that the present government belonged to Pashtoons and are committed to bring development and prosperity.

He said that Imran Khan was the only political leader who always talked about the rights of people in erstwhile FATA.

He assured that fast track development of newly merged districts was the first priority of the provincial government. This was his mission which he would accomplish under all circumstances, the Chief Minister concluded.
