Good gesture should be lauded. Provincial govt in KPK is being run as any democratic govt should run, without any influence of Imran Khan and others. Not like Punjab where CM is doing the job of a DC and of an SHO.

@Blithe: "PKR 100mio is peanuts!!! It’s less than the money thrown at him when he dances on the container "

Very rarely these peanuts come out of their own pockets. Each officer of the state, according to his grade, is allotted a certain amount of money which can be disposed off by him/her when the need arises. No questions asked.
