January 11, 2018

PESHAWAR: The Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa on Thursday convened a meeting of lawmakers from different political parties to discuss implementation of 18th Constitutional Amendment.

Senators, members National and Provincial Assemblies, leaders of political parties and members of civil society participated in the meeting.

Senator Farhatullah Babar said that the amendment was done to give provinces autonomy over their resources but KP has no autonomy over its oil and gas reserves and declared it brazen violation of the Constitution of Pakistan.

He said that some vested interests did not want Pakistan’s dependence over import of oil and gas and demanded that such elements should be exposed and taken to task.

Dr Saib Alam Mehsud of Pakhtunkhwa Olasi Tehreek said that how natural resources of Khyber Pakthunkhwa could be explored when the federal government was not allowing Chinese investors to visit the province under China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.

KP Assembly Deputy Speaker Mehr Taj Roghani said that the federal government was even not paying net hydel profit to province and was begging for its own share.
