PESHAWAR - Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani here on Saturday announced the release of Rs10 billion to the NWFP government in head of net hydel profit with immediate effect, besides pledging to pay the remaining Rs100 billion in annual installments in the next four years. Today, I am so happy to meet a longstanding demand of the Frontier government by releasing Rs. 10 billion to it as the first installment, out of the total Rs. 110 billion, which WAPDA owed the NWFP in head of net hydel profit, he said. He was speaking at a news conference at the Jirga Hall at the Governors House, where he spent a busy day. He chaired three different meetings in relation to the law and order situation in FATA and the province, rehabilitation process in the Malakand division, and migration of tribesmen from South Waziristan Agency. He pledged that the remaining Rs 100 billion would be paid through annual installments to the NWFP by releasing Rs. 25 billion in the first quarter of each financial year. He also asked both the NWFP government and Wapda to withdraw their cases from the court filed on the net hydel profit issue. Condemning the Meena Bazaar blast in strong words, he was of the view that militants had neither religion nor ideology, but were bent upon destabilizing Pakistan, as they were working on a foreign agenda. I salute the Army, Frontier Corps, Police and Frontier Constabulary, for rendering sacrifices for the sake of the country and securing the future of coming generations. He maintained that the terrorists would be completely defeated. We have the will to get the country out of the prevailing challenges. Peace and economy are interconnected, thus, certain effective steps had to be taken to improve the law and order situation so as to lure maximum foreign investment and accelerate economic activities in the country, he added. It is a fact that military operation is not the solution to all problems. Military action is only meant to restore peace. Actually, there is a need to work for economic and social development, as poverty and illiteracy are the root causes of terrorism, the Prime Minister remarked. He said that the government had adopted the same standard for the IDPs from South Waziristan Agency as it had for the displaced people from Swat. There should be no confusion about the treatment of IDPs from Waziristan being in the same spirit. He informed that the Federal Government had so far released Rs. 2.5 billion for the IDPs from Waziristan. In addition, Malakand would be made a role model for assisting the IDPs, for which a committee headed by the NWFP Governor had already been formed. He also directed the Governor to prepare a comprehensive report on FATA regarding pre and post operation requirements within the shortest possible time and submit it to the Federal government. Mehsud tribesmen are true and patriotic Pakistanis. However, certain foreign elements are spoiling the situation in Waziristan, said Mr. Gilani, adding that Pakistan is in a state of war and the people of the NWFP are definitely bearing the brunt of terrorism. Thus, the Federal Government is considering the request of the NWFP government to provide it with Rs. 30 billion for the enhancement of its security agencies. The Prime Minister also announced the establishment of the Police Shuhada Trust in the four provinces for which the Federal Government would provide the money, which would be used for compensation and welfare of the families of those martyred in incidents of terrorism. Furthermore, he announced a package of Rs. 50 million to compensate victims of terrorism. Flanked by Governor NWFP Owais Ahmad Ghani, Chief Minister Ameer Haider Hoti, Interior Minister Rehman Malik, Information Minister Qamar Zaman Kaira, State Minister for Finance Hina Rabbani Khar, Federal Ministers Lal Muhammad Khan and Najmuddin Khan and several provincial ministers, he said that his government was focusing on providing education and health facilities to all the countrymen. With the same spirit, he said, he had ordered the establishment of a University in Swat. To a query regarding the statement of Indian Premier Manmohan Singh in which he had offered the resumption of dialogue between the two neighboring countries, he replied that there was need to resolve all issues, including the core issue of Kashmir, through talks. There is no way other than resuming dialogue to improve relations between Pakistan and India, PM Gilani maintained. Regarding the visit of the US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, he said that Hillary had held meetings with the government, students, members of civil society and traders, saying that the US and Pakistan were united in their fight against terrorism. Replying to a question, he said that different parties had different views on the NRO, with some opposing it while others favouring it, which is the right of each political party. However, the Parliament was the supreme body in this connection and would decide its future. Earlier, the meeting offered fateha for the departed souls of the Meena bazaar blast, and prayed for the early recovery of the injured.
