PESHAWAR: Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Information Minister Mian Iftikhar Hussain on Monday said last year’s devastating floods in the province, along with the consistent spate of terrorism, have obstructed the benefits of provincial autonomy obtained under the 18th Amendment.

Talking to representatives of Lower Dir Press Club, the information minister asserted that benefits of provincial autonomy would have become visible had the province not been hit by the deluge coupled with the threat of militancy. Declaring provincial autonomy as a silent revolution, he said it was a great achievement of the present government that resulted in control over its resources.
