“In the past the political bigwigs and leaders visited their village time and again and assured the repair of the broken tube-well meant for drinking purpose but nothing was done,” he said. “Now the tubewell had been repaired by the candidate from his own pocket,” he added.
Naseerullah Khan, a trader in Darra Pezu town, said the power supply to the locality inhabited by their ‘khel’ was being tripped due to faulty transformer but it had now been repaired by the candidate belonging to their village.

pipeline to their locality. Also, the dwellers of Sheikhan and Sher Khan localities in Lakki town also thanked him for installing 100KV power transformer.
