KOHAT, Nov 2: Former provincial governors and retired bureaucrats have launched Kohat Citizens Committee (KCC) to help improve law and order situation in the district and bring investment in the industrial sector.

A statement issued here on Tuesday said that the pioneers of KCC, formed a couple of days ago, vowed at the inaugural function to ensure retrieving maximum benefits from the natural resources in the shape of jobs and royalty by using their influence at the federal and provincial level.

They admitted that various governments had usurped the just rights of the people of the southern districts taking advantage from the illiteracy in the oil and gas rich zones.

Three retired army generals who later served as governors of different provinces also participated in the function.
