Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Pervez Khattak has said his government laid down the foundation for a new Pakistan in the province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. His government opened the way for the implementation of AGN Qazi formula for the net hydel profit of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, he added. He said under the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and China Economic Plan, the province would see a new wave of foreign investment upto 40 billion $ adding that the legislations his government introduced for the Islamic injunctions and values in the province were unparallel in nature and substance. He was addressing a dinner hosted in his honour by Umar Ayaz Khan of Ghazni Khel Manki Sharif Nowshera wherein Abdali Khan and Sar Zameen Khan of ANP announced quitting ANP alongwith their families members and dozens of companions and joined PTI. They expressed their confidence in the leadership of Pervez Khattak and assured him all out support for the accomplishment of the mission for change. The gathering was also addressed by Provincial Minister Mian Jamsheduddin, MNA Dr. Imran Khattak and others. The Chief Minister said his government brought along a new system of governance giving autonomy to the public sector institutions for efficient delivery. He regretted that in the past institutions were submissive to the will of influential that brought untold miseries to the man in the street. The people suffered and they had to implore the influential, the elite and the political figures for even their genuine rights. His government eliminated that culture, empowering the institutions for efficient delivery, he added. He said that because of the government efforts, the writ of the government established, peace and normalcy is coming back and it is not the end but the beginning for the establishment of a system wherein the people would get power to make their own decisions, he added. Chief Minister said his government had the challenge to lead the province to stand on its own feet. He accepted the challenge and worked harder to make this province a strong federating unit. He logically fought the case of the provincial rights and succeeded in uncapping the Rs. 6 billion net hydel profit bringing it to Rs.18 billion annually and his government made the AGN Qazi formula alive that would lead the net hydel profit to reach Rs. 80 billion annually. Pervez Khattak said that the approval of the Chashma lift irrigation scheme was another achievement of his government. The project costing Rs. 120 billion would be shared by the provincial and federal government as 35% and 65% respectively that would irrigate 2 lac 86 thousand acre of barren land and which he added was the logical destination for the province to get food autarky. The Chief Minister reminded the audience of his efforts for convincing the federal government to provide its surplus natural gas to the province for its new industrial obligations in the province. He lamented the province was kept in the dark on CPEC but he pulled his sleeves, fought it out and made western rout part of the CPEC. We also succeeded to bring 24 billion $ of investment in the province and approved linking Jand with Kohat via motorway. The PSDP also approved a railway track from Peshawar to D.I.Khan, he added. He said his government inked 82 projects including the industrial estates at Hattar, Rashakai and D.I.Khan in the Beijing Road Show. He hoped that the foreign investors would flood the province in the near future adding that a number of MoUs have already been signed with the investors of Denmark, England, Canada, Malaysia and other countries. The Chief Minister said his government has already made agreements with FWO that valued 11 billion $ in housing, hydel power, cement plants and oil refinery sectors. The Chief Minister also highlighted the set of Islamic legislations for the introduction of Islamic injunctions and values in the province adding that even the religo- political parties during their rule in the province did not do any islamization in the province adding that four thousand mosques were being solarized in the province and additional funding were being given to mainstream the religious institutions. The Chief Minister thanked the people of Nowshera for reposing confidence in him and his party and drew a comparison between his government and governments of the past adding that his government performance was for more excellent. The people were joining PTI at mass scale. Pervez Khattak said that PTI was the future of the country and he was sure that PTI would form governments not only in KP but in the whole of Pakistan on the basis of its excellent performance and service delivery. <><><><><><>
