Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Mahmood Khan has directed members of the Provincial Cabinet to ensure their presence in meetings of Provincial Assembly when in session, attend the assembly well prepared for the question answer session and ensure their presence in offices so that the issues of people could be resolved well in time. He has said that ensuring good governance is a joint responsibility of all the cabinet members adding that being the chief executive, he would personally monitor performance of the cabinet members. He issued these directives while chairing a meeting of the provincial cabinet here on Thursday.
The meeting was attended by provincial cabinet members, Additional Chief Secretary and administrative secretaries of relevant departments. The provincial cabinet approved a fund of Rs 1,000 million during the current financial year as a non-ADP scheme to minimize the damages caused by national disasters in the province and to start rehabilitation work in the disasters affected areas without any delay. However, the non-ADP scheme thus approved will be converted into a regular ADP scheme during the next financial year. Under the non-ADP scheme, rehabilitation work would be carried out to restore infrastructure destroyed in Golain area of Chitral in the aftermath of a glacial lake outburst flood earlier in July this year.
