Hasba Bill to give more rights to women: CM

DERA ISMAIL KHAN: NWFP Chief Minister Akram Khan Durrani criticised on Saturday the passage of the Women Protection Bill and said the provincial government had ensured more rights for the women by passing the Hasba Bill. Talking to journalists at the circuit house here, he said the provincial government was utilising all resources to come up to the expectations of the electorate. He said his government had made efforts to get the net hydel profit of the province and would strongly protest if the first installment in this regard was delayed. Durrani said the Chashma Lift Canal project would result in an agricultural revolution in the southern districts. He added that the federal government was supposed to provide funds for the project and, if it did not do so, the provincial government would arrange the required money from the first installment of the net hydel profit.
