PESHAWAR - KP Chief Minister Pervez Khattak has asked the workers of PTI to start preparations for local govt elections being held in May this year and keep vigil on performance of the govt departments to make it subservient to the needs of the people in the real sense.

He was talking to local office bearers of PTI tehsil Khaal Dir Payan who called on him here on Wednesday.

The CM asserted that his govt is marching ahead successfully in achieving the set goals by taking along all the coalition partners and said that PTI and allied parties will contest local govt elections jointly.

He vowed that his govt besides all the resources and powers also transferred additional 30 per cent funds of the provincial govt to the local bodies wherein each district will receive extra developmental funds to the tune of Rs. 400 million that will be sufficient for revolutionary changes of development at village and town levels after transparent use.

Pervez Khattak while taking strong notice of delay in rationalization of teachers as per ratio of students in schools of the district, directed the deputy commissioner to complete this process within a week.

He said there would be school based appointments in the province while complete ban has been imposed on transfers of teachers.
