Record reforms, legislation a foundation for good governance: Khattak

PESHAWAR, Jan 5 (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 05th Jan, 2017 ) : Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Pervez Khattak has said that record reforms and legislations introduced during the PTI led provincial government should be a foundation for the future good governance.

Talking to a 5-member delegation of PILDAT led by Shahid Hamid, Senior Advocate, Supreme Court of Pakistan at CM House, Peshawar, he said that the PTI government had sketched out a system where the government officials would have to perform and deliver.

Politicians have devastated the country by ruthlessly plundering the national resources and making interference in public institutions while the PTI government has put the country on the road to progress and prosperity by putting an end to political interference checking plundering of resources and corruption.

Chief Secretary Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Abid Saeed, administrative secretaries of concerned departments were also present. The Chief Minister said his government introduced an Ehtasab Law to take to task all corrupt and wrongdoers.

The Ehtesab Law of the present Khyber Pakhtunkhwa could not trust the corrupt to make a comeback to the public office.

Chief Minister said Ehtesab Commission was autonomous, free of government interference and was carrying out all inquiries transparently and without any influence.

He said public access was ensured to the service delivery through Right to Services. There are almost 25 services which would have to be provided to the people within a timeframe. Failure in this regard would be considered as a crime.

He reminded under the conflict of interest no public office holder would continue his own business while the whistle blower law would be a deterrence against corruption, fraud and irregularities.

We have given a system of governance supported by necessary legislations and this would provide a base for the future governance in the province. He said that whistle blower law was passed to eliminate corruption in the province.

Similarly he said that right to service law was introduced to provide easy access to the people to the services. Pervez Khattak said his government formed different boards in all public sectors entities and the government interference was eliminated making these institutions autonomous with the power to hire and fire.
