Pakhtunkhwa's chief minister Ameer Haider Khan Hoti has said that his government was not acting on the policies of others as they were against crushing the terrorists through the involvement of forces.
“We need no dictation or polices from outside as we are independent in our decisions,” Hoti told various delegations of public representatives from different parts of the province during his weekly meeting with them at the Frontier House in Peshawar on Friday.
The release of Sufi Muhammad was an evident from the fact that the provincial government takes decisions on its own, the chief minister said.
Hoti said Pakhtun society has its own values where all the disputes could only be resolved through the engagement of traditional tribal jirga.
“Some vested interests are involved in sabotaging the peace process of our government, but their tactics would not shake our stance over the issue,” Hoti declared.
“Despite all the challenges and problems, we will emerge successfully with the support of the people and the efforts being launched by the provincial government for bringing back peace and normalcy to the regions,” he added.
He said that the next budget would be in accordance with the aspirations of the people, adding practical measures have been initiated to get the province’s share in its net hydel profit in order to ensure sufficient resources for the wellbeing of the masses.
Hoti said protection to the lives and properties of the people would be ensured at all costs and in this regard to effort will be spared.
However, he said autonomy over the own resources of the Frontier Province was inevitable as their best utilization would help overcome the challenges.
Chief minister urged the public representatives to keep close contact with the people of their respective areas and remain active for resolving their problems.
The public representatives on this occasion kept abreast the chief minister about the problems being faced by the people of their respective constituencies.
