Governor directs Administrative in FATA to serve people honestly


Peshawar: The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Governor Sardar Mahtab Ahmad Khan has directed all the government officers of the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) to serve the tribal people with sincerity and true spirit rather than adopting authoritative behaviour.

Moreover, he emphasized for completion of the development projects without any further delay in order to provide quick services and facilities to the people of FATA.

This he said while giving policy guidelines to the new additional chief secretary FATA Mohammad Aslam Kambwa who called on him at the Governor’s House, Peshawar on Tuesday.

The governor directed the new ACS not to limit the developmental projects only to papers but ensure timely completion of all the people welfare schemes for the larger interest of tribal people.

He also urged him to ensure close coordination with all the parliamentarians and elite of FATA and they be consulted properly in connection with the development projects.

The governor expressed the hope that the new ACS would utilize his vast experience he achieved while serving in different areas of the country, including Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and FATA properly and to the best satisfaction of the tribal people.

The Governor Sardar Mahtab Ahmad Khan directed the additional chief secretary to get completed all the people welfare projects so far initiated in the FATA without any further delay so that the tribal people could get the required facilities.

He also directed him to ensure transparency in the development work and make all the government officers and other employees answerable to the state side by side with proper monitoring of the use of powers by the government functionaries.

The governor vehemently declared that no leniency on the part of the government employees should be tolerated further. He said every penny of the FATA people would be spent for their welfare and no one would be allowed to misuse the same.

The governor also directed for demonstrating austerity in the offices and 100 percent presence of the government employees should also be ensured.

The governor also stated that the FATA parliamentarians should be consulted in connection with the people welfare schemes. He said the tribal elite should also be given due respect in the developmental strategy. He said their recommendations and suggestions should be given weight in the implementation process as well.

The governor directed that the doors of FATA secretariat and other administrative offices be kept opened for the tribal people and they should be treated in friendly atmosphere.

He also urged the administrative officers to arrange visits to their areas and listen to the grievances of the tribesmen with a suitable solution to their issues. He also issued directives in connection with the timely repatriation of TDPs and removal of their difficulties.
