Schools to be rebuilt in Bara with Chinese assistance

BARA: A senior official of Khyber Agency said on Wednesday that the educational institutions destroyed in militancy would be reconstructed soon with the assistance of the Chinese government.

Talking to reporters here on Wednesday, Political Agent Khalid Mehmood said that more than 100 schools and colleges were destroyed by militants in one-and-a-half decade long militancy in the Khyber Agency.

He said the health sectors, business centres and other infrastructure were also destroyed in militancy and military operations in the area. "We have decided to reconstruct the destroyed schools with the help of the Chinese government, particularly in Khyber Agency," he said, adding that more schools had already been reconstructed after restoring peace in the Bara tehsil.

Khalid Mehmood said that 50 government schools, out of total 68, would be reconstructed in the first phase with the help of Chinese government. He said thousands of children were deprived of basic right of education. "All destroyed schools will need billions of rupees for rebuilding in Khyber Agency," he said, adding the government would also provide sports facilities to youngsters in the Khyber Agency. The official maintained that the NADRA offices and banks would be shifted to the Bara Bazar from other places soon.
