Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Mahmood Khan has stated that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf has established itself as the leading political party of Pakistan that is representative of its people and is working for strengthening of the federation and empowerment of its citizens.
The joining of hundreds of independently elected local government representatives and political activists of other parties have wiped out all opposition parties from the political landscape at grass root level unanimously.
While chairing a meeting of cabinet members and PTI MPAs at the Chief Minister’s House Peshawar, Mahmood Khan made it clear that the political choice of people has become plain and clear and PTI has been accepted, without any doubt, as the sole political party working for the welfare of the people and development of the country.
He stated that the performance of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province has set the roadmap for development and prosperity of the province.
The multidimensional and uniform approach has instilled confidence and people now look up government institutions for efficient services delivery in every sector.
Touching upon the policy and strategy of the provincial government, the Chief Minister stated that multiple steps have been taken for greater revenue generation to ensure self-sustainability, followed by steps to ensure efficient service delivery and empowerment of people by making them part of the development process.
The Chief Ministersaid that the strengthening of communication networks, provision of a conducive environment for investment, and exploiting the natural beauty of the province will ensure greater revenue generation and will also open avenues for livelihood opportunities.
Some of the projects of the incumbent government in this regard include Peshawar to DI Khan motorway, the extension of the already established Swat Expressway, a wheeling model to provide cheap electricity to investors in the industrial sector, establishment of industrial zones, promotion of tourism as an industry, establishment of tourism zones and many other steps have ensured greater trust on part of investors and have set the province on the track of development.
