PESHAWAR: Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Pervaiz Khattak has said that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) had contested the general elections with an agenda of change.
“We were voted to power for changing the existing system of injustice, corruption, mismanagement and bribery and not for petty things like paving streets, the installation of power transformers or posting and transferring government officials,” an official handout quoted him as telling a meeting of the divisional and district presidents and general secretaries of the PTI, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, here.
He, however, added that once the existing system was replaced with a public-friendly and service-oriented one, all the problems of the people would automatically be solved. He said that from the very first day of its inception, the present provincial government was working on a one-point agenda of changing the existing system as promised in the general elections.
Speaker provincial assembly Asad Qaiser, provincial minister Shaukat Yousafzai and in-charge PTI’s provincial secretariat Ashfaq Paracha and a number of provincial ministers and members of provincial assembly belonging to the PTI attended the meeting.
The meeting reviewed in detail the implementation status of the reforms agenda of the provincial government, preparations of the party for the upcoming local bodies elections and various organisational matters of the party.
The chief minister urged the party office-bearers and workers to be united and start preparations for the elections in an organised and effective manner. He also stressed the need to follow party discipline with special reference to the local bodies elections. He termed the LB polls important for the implementation of the party’s agenda of change.
“We can effectively implement the reforms agenda only by adequate representation in the local bodies. The party workers should work rigorously for the purpose strictly following party discipline,” he

added.
Khattak maintained that the draft bill of the proposed local government system was approved by the provincial cabinet which will soon be tabled in the provincial legislature for approval.
He urged the elected representatives and party workers to play their role in ensuring the implementation of the government’s reforms agenda and to closely monitor the implementation process in their respective areas.
