PESHAWAR: PTI MNA from NA-2 Peshawar Hamidul Haq has pledged that all representatives elected through the local bodies’ elections will seek to resolve the problems of the people at the grass-roots level.
Speaking to The Express Tribune, Haq said all elected representatives will ensure relief is provided to the general public at their doorsteps.
“PTI has only issued tickets to those who will work for the welfare of the people,” he said. “These candidates, if elected, will resolve people’s challenges which most MNAs and provincial assembly members cannot directly address.”
Need of the hour
According to Haq, his party’s aim is to boost the standard of education and provide basic health facilities to the general public.
“Improvements in these sectors will be the first priority of elected representatives,” he said. “They will establish education and health committees on a district and union council level.”
Haq maintained these committees will find solutions to the problems faced by locals in these sectors.
“Special funds will be provided to elected representatives in this regard,” he said. “They will be encouraged to provide facilities on an urgent basis.”
Haq said education committees will work closely with parent teacher councils (PTCs) and discuss their monthly progress.
“PTCs will be expected to inform committees about any facilities missing at schools and the shortage or absence of teachers,” he said. “Elected representatives will be bound to take action.”
The PTI MNA said such committees will bring significant improvements in the quality of education and health in the province.
