Chief Minister expected 130 playgrounds in the province exceeding the targets of each Tehsil having at least one playground soon. He directed for accelerated work on Rs. 1.38 billion construction and renovation work at Arbab Niaz Cricket ground bringing it to the international standard with hostel and other allied facilities for the stay of the players etc. He also directed to speed up the work on the project to complete it before the stipulated time period. The advanced communication system and other allied facilities would make the project unique in nature, he added. He was presiding over a presentation to review the progress on beautification of tourists resorts and tehsil sports grounds at Chief Minister House Peshawar. Provincial Minister for Information Shah Farman, Advisor to CM for Tourism Abdul Munim, MPA Shaukat Yousafzai, administrative secretaries of concerned departments and other concerned high ups attended. Pervez Khattak directed for the full operationalization of youth centres in all districts of the province. The youth, he said should have all recreational and sporting facilities to harness their capabilities for more creative purposes in the province. Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Pervez Khattak has asked the tourism department to provide camping facilities in the touristic and scenic areas of the province at secure places to enable the tourists to install their camps and arrange their stays on their own instead of looking for costly hotels and motels. He said he had approved the construction of a new highway with camping and stay spots from Kalam Swat to Kumrat Dir Upper to connect all the touristic places between the two districts. He expressed the confidence that the new road from Kalam to Kumrat would not only connect Swat and Dir Upper but enough tourism facilities would be provided to the people and would thus enable families to spend weeks touring scenic places between two districts. He also directed heads of all the departments to create separate maintenance and rehabilitation cells to carry out all such tasks immediately instead of wasting time for the procedural work. Such delays affected the developmental and beautification works of nation building departments, he added. Chief Minister also directed for the construction of the remaining portion of road leading to the new touristic spot Kapar Banda in Shangla district and asked the concerned authorities to arrange funds for the purpose. He asked the tourism department to hold meeting with Galiyat Development Authority to outsource touristic spots to provide maximum facilities to the people through the dynamism of private sector. ======
