KP govt has failed to protect rights of province: QWP
PESHAWAR: Qaumi Watan Party (QWP) provincial Chairman Sikandar Hayat Khan Sherpao said on Wednesday that the KP government had been unable to protect the rights of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
Addressing a convention of party workers in Elay village in Buner district, he said the KP government should press the federal government to convene the meeting of the National Finance Commission (NFC) in a bid to increase the share of the province in the award.
He added that the federal government should convene the NFC Award meeting at the earliest, urging the KP government to swing into action and get the share of the province raised in the distribution of resources.
“The federal government is using delaying tactics to finalise the 9th NFC Award but on the other hand the provincial government also seems to be least bothered to secure the rights of the province,” he pointed out, adding that it would affect the development of KP due to the non-provision of adequate funds.
