Islamabad- Khyber Pakhtunkhwa's Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) led government today denied reports of any disorder , during the observation of Peshawar schoolchildren’s Chehlum at Chief Minister House.
“First off nothing of the sort of a mess-up came to pass during the event, but even then we apologize for anything that may have hurt anyone’s feelings,” the PTI leader Mushtaq Gani told reporters.
Earlier, a state-organized ceremony to commemorate the Chehlum of Army Public School martyrs was held. During the ceremony, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government matched the compensation for the young martyrs with that offered to the heirs of military and non-military security personnel, in case of their martyrdom at the hands of terrorists.
“The parents had expressed reservations over the earlier announced recompense worth Rs500, 000 each for APS martyrs , which was raised to Rs2 million. All the victims of terrorism are martyrs no matter who they may be,” PTI’s provincial minister for industries Shaukat Yousafzai said while talking to newsmen.
Addressing the ceremony, Chairman PTI Imran Khan promised all-out help for the medical treatment of the survivors. "I am offering free of cost medical assistance for the wounded children at Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital," Khan said adding, "Should any injured required a visit to an  overseas hospital, the provincial government will duly make arrangements for the trip."
