Pervaiz Khattak as CM took excellent initiatives for uplift of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa: PM Imran Khan

HARIPUR (APP) – Prime Minister Imran Khan Prime Minster Imran Khan lauded Dr Attaur Rehman and former KP chief minister Pervaiz Khattak for taking the initiatives having far-reaching impact on the provincial development.

Addressing the groundbreaking ceremony of Pakistan Digital City Special Technology Zone on Monday, he said that after coming into power in 2013, it was the KP government that had introduced the health insurance facility for the low-income people of the province despite financial constraints. "Moreover, it was also the PTI government that raised the issues of climate change, forestation, institution building and tourism."

The prime minister also appreciated Dr Attaur Rehman for his support to establish Pak-Austria Fachhochschule Institute of Applied Sciences and Technology in Haripur which would have positive impact on next generations.

He said that the investment in technology sector was vital to create employment for the youth as well as improve the national economy. “The future is technology. The Special Technology Zone is a complete ecosystem. The provincial government generated resources for the project which will have a positive impact on next generations,” he added.

Imran Khan said that in the past, England had established two top class universities which provided leadership to the world for long.

He said that the previous governments never focused on education sector and instead brought about three-tier education system which promoted three cultures and left negative impact on the society.

The flagship project of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government would be established on 86 kanals of land and would cost Rs 1.31 billion.

A large number of IT and allied technologies including electronics, computers and mobile phones, software houses and technology incubators would largely benefit from the project that would would boost the allied industries and generate hundreds of thousands of jobs for the youths.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Imran Khan held a meeting with Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Mahmood Khan and Governor Shah Farman.
