Charsadda: On Friday, Chief Minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Mahmood Khan said that work on a number of development schemes worth Rs. 25 billion is underway in the district of Charsadda, and that more development projects worth Rs. 1 billion each will be launched shortly in all of the district’s constituencies.
He told a public assembly in Wali Bagh, district Charsadda, that a revamping of the District Headquarter Hospital Charsadda would be undertaken to increase its capacity and provide better health treatment to local residents.
Ameer Zaib Khan, a powerful political figure, pledged his support for Pakistan Tehreek Insaaf on this occasion.
The current wave of inflation in the country, according to the chief minister, is the result of previous rulers’ ill-conceived economic policies, while the current government, led by Prime Minister Imran Khan, is taking serious steps to curb inflation.
He slammed the previous rulers of the province, saying that the so-called leaders of the Pakhtoons had power in the province for a long time but did nothing to improve the lives of the people, adding that Imran Khan, the leader of the Pakistan Tehreek Insaaf and Prime Minister, is working and planning to ensure the future of the new generation.
He called the Sehat Card Scheme a landmark and pro-poor project of the PTI government, noting that it provides free healthcare to 100 percent of the province’s population, as well as high-cost treatments and surgeries including as liver and kidney transplants.
Mahmood Khan noted that the provincial government had recently created the Kissan Card Scheme to assist the province’s farmers by providing them with subsidised seeds, pesticides, and fertilisers.
