LANDIKOTAL: Federal Minister for Religious Affairs Noorul Haq Qadri said on Saturday that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI)

government was providing opportunities to the students of merged districts so that they could also play a key role in the country’s development.

He was speaking as chief guest at the dastarbandi at Madrassa Farooqia in Sheikhmalkhel area of Landikotal. Noorul Haq Qadri said the government was creating jobs in the tribal districts so that they could also work for the prosperity and development of the country.

“You would notice a positive change in the merged districts during next five years,’’ he said, adding the government would sanction 4000 more posts in the education department in June in the tribal areas.

Noorul Haq Qadri said work on the Shalman Water Supply Scheme would soon start to resolve the water scarcity issue in Landikotal.

The minister said that Tesco would install electricity meters at the Landikotal bazaar to solve the issue of electricity.

Qadri said, “Fata has been abolished but the students can still benefit from its scholarship schemes.”

The minister distributed laptops, mobile tablets, digital Quran Kareem and shields among 30 students.
