PESHAWAR: Chief Minister Mahmood Khan has called upon the elected representatives to identify the need driven developmental schemes in their respective constituencies and mobilise their energies for mitigating the sufferings of the people.
“We have to devote ourselves to work for the poor segment of society,” he said talking to MPAs at his office in Chief Minister Secretariat, Peshawar.
CM Mahmood urged MPAs to work out the uplifting of their areas and address grievances of the poor within their constituencies. “We have to do away with the traditional politics of deceit and bamboozling the poor, using them as a launching pad to reach the corridor of power and then turn a deaf ear to their real issues.
We will have to be realistic focusing on the grievances of the hapless people giving them the confidence that we are the real custodians of their rights and we will never breach the trust they put on us,” he said.
Mahmood reiterated that the present government would work hard to get the poor out of their grievances, adding that his government has stopped the misuse of resources and the resources saved thus could be diverted to the public welfare.
He assured that the reconstruction and rehabilitation of the newly merged districts would continue to be placed at the top of his government priorities.
The people of these merged tribal areas would be brought to the national stream of development.
He assured to continue visiting the tribal districts along with other districts of the province in order to personally keep himself abreast of the ground realities, the real issues of the people and work out the development and welfare strategy while sitting among the people.
The 10-year plan for the rehabilitation and reconstruction was the ultimate goal of the government which would never be compromised, he added.
