MINGORA: Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Mahmood Khan said on Saturday that the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf government was introducing a transparent and accountable system after which no ruler would dare to loot public funds like in the past.

He was speaking at a meeting with elders and area people at his residence in Matta, Swat. He said that following the vision of Imran Khan the PTI-led government would successfully bring the country out of the crisis.

“In the past, the rulers did not take serious steps to take the country out of financial crisis and put it on the track of development, but the PTI government is determined to lead the country in positive direction and soon the nation would feel the change in every sector,” he said, adding that the government would introduce a system which would automatically scan the fair and unfair people.

“We will make an example of corrupt politicians for the people in future so that they will not dare to loot public funds and we will award those politicians and officials who would serve public,” he said.

The chief minister said that the KP government was aware of the problems of Malakand division and Swat. “Our government has made proper planning to resolve the issues of war-torn and flood-hit Malakand division,” he said.

He said that unfortunately the province was facing a resource crunch and that was because of the past rulers who looted the province and initiated no policy to make the region developed and prosperous.

He said that people of Swat had faced multiple problems in the past, but now an era of development and prosperity had begun.

“Our province is rich in resources and the government knows how to put the resources to the service of its citizens and development of the region,” he said.

Mahmood Khan said that Swat was rich in resources like minerals, forests and water and had high potential for international tourism.

“We have already initiated several mega projects, including motorways, which will not only boost the tourism industry, but also change the standard of life here,” he claimed.

The chief minister thanked the people of Swat for electing PTI candidates in the general elections and said that in return the government would address their issues. On this occasion, he also listened to public problems and issued orders to the relevant departments to resolve them on priority.
