MANSEHRA: Chief Minister Ameer Haider Hoti Saturday said the creation of Abaseen division would be formally announced after December 31.
No administrative division can be made during the census. The creation of Abaseen division would be announced soon after the census, he told a public gathering in Battagram.
The Abaseen division would be comprised Battagram, Kohistan and newly-created Torghar districts.
MPA Taj Mohammad Tarind, former provincial minister Yousuf Tarind and former district nazim Attaullah Khan Tarind announced their joining the Awami National Party (ANP) along with their supporters.
The chief minister said time was not far away when Khyber Pakhtunkhwa would be free of the militancy and terrorism. We are ready to talk to terrorists if they surrender the arms first and follow the Shariah and Constitution of the country, he added.
Haider Hoti said terrorism was a big hurdle to the prosperity and development of the people and the country. We negotiated and accepted the Shariah demand in the Malakand division but they considered it our weakness and breached the agreement. Now it is a do or die for us but terrorism would not be allowed to prevail in the province as it is a matter of life and death of our generations, Haider Hoti elaborated.
He said once again peace was prevailing in the Malakand and it was the ANP government that for the first time in the history of the province received Rs110 billion from the federal government as royalty of the Tarbela dam. He said the next general elections would be won by the ANP, adding: People want us in the power in the KP and we would serve them.
Hoti announced a developmental package of Rs200 million for the Battagram district. He also announced the upgrading of the government high schools of Thakot, Pemal Sharif and Pashora as the higher secondary schools.
The chief minister also announced a playground, college bus for the Degree College Battagram and construction of the

Battagram-Oghi Road.
