National

October 2, 2016

KARAK: The Bannu bench of the Peshawar High Court issued stay order about the utilisation of oil and gas royalty and production bonus funds on the plea of Tehsil Nazim Karak Abdul Wahab Khattak.

The tehsil nazim had moved the Peshawar High Court Bannu bench through Muhammad Ishaq Khattak against the mechanism of the utilisation of the oil and gas royalty and production bonus funds.

Muhammad Ishaq Khattak prayed to the court that under the petroleum policy of the federal government, the representatives of local government system were authorised to utilise the funds.

However, he said the provincial government had ignored the representatives of the local government and had given the rights of its utilisation to MPAs and MNAs, which was against the spirit of the constitution. He claimed that it was tantamount to usurping the rights of the local government representatives. The court issued notices to the federal secretary of petroleum and natural resources, provincial secretary of Energy and Power and others.
