LAHORE: Senior Minister, Khyber P. and deputy chief, Jamaat e Islami, Sirajul Haq, has convened a meeting of the former Finance Ministers of the province to seek their support for finding out solutions for the financial problems of the province.

Talking to the media men at Mansoora Tuesday, Sirajul Haq said that he had personally contacted ANP’s acting chief Haji Muhammad Adeel, PPP’s Muhammad Iftekhar Mehmand, Nawabzada Mohsin Ali Khan, Faridpur Rahman, Saleem Saifullah, Rauf Khattak, and Shahraz Khan, and invited them at the provincial Secretariat for finding out the ways to pull the province out of the worst economic crisis.

Sirajul Haq said that the Khyber P. was facing worst economic crisis because the federal government was not sharing with it the profit on electricity generation.

The federations was denying the province its constitutional rights regarding finances and the province was also deprived of basic facilities like gas, and water due to which the provincial government could not start any mega project.

He said this was not the issue of any party or government, it was the issue of twenty million people of Khyber P.

Sirajul Haq said that even in the past, the bureaucracy and the management in the centre had denied the provinces of their lawful rights and resources which gave birth to Bangladesh. He said in order to strengthen Pakistan, the just and equal distribution of resources was imperative.
