    He said that former rulers looted the public exchequers to make their private assets instead of serving the people and that’s why the public rejected those political elements and voted PTI to power for a change.

    Mahmood Khan remarked that a group of jobless politicians in the name of PDM was talking about overthrowing the incumbent government but whatever they do, they would not succeed in their nefarious intentions, because they had already been rejected by the people. Mahmood Khan said that the current government under the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan had put the country on the path of development.

    He made it clear that PTI believed in practical efforts instead of slogans and mere promises stating that his government had completed the merger of Ex-FATA in a short span of three years which was undoubtedly an extraordinary achievement of his government. Mahmood Khan said that a project worth Rs. 12 billion had been approved to resolve the long standing issue of drinking water in Mingora City and tender of the project had been floated adding that the project would meet the drinking water needs of Mingora City for the next fifty years.
