Youth an asset to PTI: Khattak


March 17, 2018

NOWSHERA: Chief Minister Pervez Khattak on Friday said that the youth were an asset to the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and the party-led Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government had started various technical training programmes to impart skills to the youth.

Speaking at a ‘huner maila’ at the Government Technical College of Technology here, he said that the government wanted to prepare skilled workforce as it was the need of the hour. The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Technical and Vocational Training Authority had organised the event.

Pervez Khattak said that the provincial government had made functional various technical educational institutions in collaboration with the Pakistan Air Force and singed various agreements with a number industries to provide jobs to skilled youth.

The PTI was standing for a change and the people should realise the gravity of the situation and what has been done with the country and institutions for the past few years and choose honest and dedicated leadership in the next general elections, he added.

The chief minister said that successive rulers damaged state institutions and promoted vested interest. The corrupt politicians hoodwinked the people on attractive slogans but in fact promoted vested interest, the chief minister added.

“This is the prime reason of the present sorry state of affairs in the state institutions, degradation and sense of deprivation among the masses in the country,” he added.

He said that there were enough resources and potential in the country to make progress but there was a need for change in the mindset. “If we really want development and prosperity then we would have to bring change in our approach. We need to bring change in our thoughts and minds,” he elaborated.

He said the PTI-led provincial government had introduced reforms in the state institution and laid foundation for a change in all fields. “It is time to erect a strong structure on these foundations,” he went on to say.

He said the province was all set to become the hub of economic and trade activities in the near future.
