Swat: According to news reports, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Chief Minister Mahmood Khan allocated a PKR 1 billion development budget for Tehsil Khwazakhela in Swat on Saturday (October 09). The funds will be utilised to construct the tehsil complex, modernise the hospital, and expand the water supply system.
CM Mehmood addressed the gathering during his two-day tour to the valley and announced a number of development projects in the province, including the construction of dams and industrial zones.
