Minister for Finance Muzaffar Said pointed out Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa had been widely criticised in the media for not spending development budgets. However, he contended this was not the case.

He explained the province had spent the development budgets, but the federal government was yet to provide around Rs70 billion.

Stori Da Pakhtunkhwa funds finally released

“We are embarrassed to tell the public the province has no more funds to spend as the federal government failed to provide billions.”

The JI leader was the chief guest at a ceremony during which education relief packages were distributed among 500 orphans and impoverished students of public sector schools on Saturday. The ceremony arranged at Hasthnagri middle school was also attended by others affiliated with JI organisations.
