“A decision to go to the Supreme Court against the “imported” government will be taken in the meeting of the provincial cabinet today (Thursday).”

K-P Chief Minister Mahmood Khan was talking to the media after the inauguration of the newly-established Police Command and Control Center at District Police Office in Swat.

Mahmood Khan went on to say that being an elected chief minister of the province, it is his responsibility to protect his people. “We are democratic people and abide by the constitution”, he declared and added that PTI workers are real asset to the party and they will again participate in the independence march with the same zeal and zest on the call of their leader.

He said that the “imported” government inflicted worst violence on the participants of peaceful long march, adding that free movement is the constitutional right of every citizen. “A decision to go to the Supreme Court against the “imported” government will be taken in the meeting of the provincial cabinet today (Thursday).”

The chief minister also handed over cheques of grant-in-aid to different bar associations including Peshawar High Court Bar Association Mingora bench at Commissioner Malakand Office. The chief minister gave Rs5 million cheque to each Tehsil Bar Association Matta, Bahrain, Khwazakhela and Kabal respectively. He gave a cheque of Rs10 million to District Bar Association Swat and Rs20 million to Peshawar High Court Bar Association Mingora bench.

During the visit, Mahmood Khan was briefed about various aspects of newly-established Police Command and Control Center and was informed that functioning of all police stations in Swat are being digitalized. The CM was informed that police access service, token automation system, police stations record management system, media monitoring system, hotel watch, E-ticketing, women safety app and CDR system have been included in the command and control center.

Responding to a question, Mahmood Khan regretted that an alleged criminal and killer was heading the committee formed against him, adding that “imported” home minister is also the main accused of the model town incident. Responding to another question, the chief minister said that the “imported” government had lodged three different cases against him and made it clear that the “imported” government should do whatever it wants, they will continue their struggle for the real independence and prosperity of the nation. To another question regarding current economic situation, the chief minister said that incompetent rulers at center had no policy to stabilize the national economy because they had come into power only to protect their wealth piled up through money laundering and other illegal means. He made it clear that the provincial government had provided Rs640 million for the supply of gas to different areas of Swat, however this fund would be spent when the incumbent imported government will end. He claimed that Amir Muaqam has been making efforts to join the PTI but the PTI workers are not ready to accept him in the party because there is no room in the party for people like Amir Muaqam. He said that the Swat would be governed only by its people. Responding to a question regarding drinking water issue in the Mingora City, Mahmood Khan said a mega project is going to be initiated to address this long standing issue of Mingora city, adding that tender for the project has also been floated and physical work on the project would be started by the end of June this year.
