For the first time in the history of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assistant Commissioner Kohat Gul Bano Monday held females’ open court (Khuli Katchery) in Urban-III Jangal Khel and heard problems of the women folk regarding public departments.
She held the open court on the special directives of Deputy Commissioner Khalid Ilyas and issued on spot directives for resolution of the problems being confronted by females. She said the government was taking pragmatic measures to empower females and bring them in mainstream for socio-economic development of the country, adding that role of females can’t be overlooked in development of any country.
She said that the provincial government was considering to establish specific markets for females only so that they could run their own business to support their families.
She asked the skilled females to get themselves registered with the government so that their expertise could be exploited in future. On the occasion, the Assistant Commissioner asked the relevant department to take immediate action on applications of the females who have sought financial assistance.
