PESHAWAR: The federal and Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) governments decided on Friday to amicably and urgently resolve the issues that had strained their ties for decades, a statement issued by the K-P government said. The decision was made in a meeting between K-P delegation led by Chief Minister Parvaiz Khattak and the federation represented by federal ministers Khawaja Asif, Ishaq Dar, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and Abid Sher Ali who were assisted by secretaries of FBR, Wapda and SNGPL at Pakistan Secretariat in Islamabad. With regard to the power load-shedding it was decided that K-P will be given its share of electricity first and then Pesco will distribute it among the areas. Issues of payment of hydel power generation profit, federal duty on oil and K-P’s royalty on LPG came under discussion.
