National Assembly Speaker Asad Qaiser has said that politicking against the national institution is not acceptable to people because they respect the sacrifices rendered by them for defence of the country.
He was addressing the inauguration ceremony of Gadoon Amazai Feeder in Topi Tehsil in Swabi District on Sunday. Federal Minister for Energy Omar Ayub was also present on the occasion. The feeder has been completed at a cost of Rs22.1 million.
Asad said it was very unfortunate that some elements were casting aspersions and insulting state institutions for their own political interests. He said three large transformers would be installed along with the Gadoon Amazai Feeder and work on Tehsil Chota Lahore Grid Station would be expedited.
The speaker said that people were suffering today due to failed policies of the past regimes. However, the incumbent government adopted prudent policies and the economy is now moving in the right direction. With the price of dollar coming down, inflation would also decline soon, he said.
Initiatives have been taken in health, education, energy and sports sectors in Swabi and locals are benefiting from the initiatives, he said. “A cadet college is being constructed in Swabi,” he said. An amount of Rs1.70 billion was being spent on gas supply project in the district, he said.
Asad Qaisr said that Insaf Health Cards would be given to the entire population of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa soon. Providing free of charge medical treatment to people is a great work of the current government. “We are doing politics not for our own betterment but for the welfare of the people and the country. When we took over the reins of the country, the economy was in a shambles and now the situation is the other way around,” he said.
