PESHAWAR: Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Pervez Khattak has said that PTI-led coalition Government will fulfill all the promises made with the people one by one including the eradication of corruption, and commission culture, provision of justice to the downtrodden segments of society and changing the existing system of exploitation.
He expressed these views while addressing as chief guest at the inaugural ceremony of Khud Kafalat scheme jointly organized by Bank of Khyber (BoK) and Industries Department here on Wednesday.
He said that all the three coalition parties of the provincial government fully agreed on the agenda of change and their track record was crystal clear to it. “We will do whatever we say and unlike the past rulers we do not believe in hypocritical politics of deceiving the public by hallow slogans”.
PTI is not greedy for anything and our sole aim is to provide relief to the public by replacing the existing system of injustice with new one as per our promises made in the general elections, he added.
Under the scheme launched with initial fund of Rs.2 billion, business loans without markup ranging from Rs.50,000 to 200,000 would be given to unemployed youth of the province for a period of three years through BoK.
The Chief Minister termed the scheme as an important step towards minimizing unemployment and poverty in the province and assured that the provincial government would allocate Rs.2 billion every year for the scheme so that maximum people could be benefitted from it.
“The ratio of unemployment and poverty has increased immensely in the province that is severely affected by the unrest and terrorism for one decade”, said the Chief Minister and added that because of the increasing unemployment and poverty, the young generation is getting involved in negative activities; which is a matter of great concern.
Pervez Khattak remarked that the agenda for change was just according to the aspirations and desires of the poor especially the youth who had reposed unprecedented confidence in the coalition parties adding that we would not let the confidence of the people shattered rather would make all out efforts to come up-to their expectations.
