HANGU: An Open Kutcheri (public forum) was organised at the Jirga Hall of Union Council Kahi in Hangu on Friday where the citizens shared complaints with the administration.

Deputy Commissioner Shah Fahad, Assistant Commissioner Yousaf Karim, District Police Officer Asif Gohar, heads of different institutions and area elders were present on the occasion.

Nazim Irshad, councillor Shaukatullah and local elders Maulana Niazbat Khan, Syed Akbar and Saleh Badshah informed that there is only one teacher for 200 students of Daman Banda in Kahi for the last one and a half year due to which the education of the students is being affected. They said there was shortage of teachers at the government schools in Union Council Kahi and the existing teachers are also not performing their duties efficiently.

The elders said the government is providing Rs120,000 to every school in the head of sports funds, but only Rs80,000 are being spent and the remaining money is misappropriated. They also complained that the private educational institutions are receiving exorbitant fees from parents disregarding the Peshawar High Court (PHC) order in this regard.

The representatives said they face excessive power load-shedding despite the fact that the local people regular pay their electricity bills. They also complained about shortage of clean drinking water in the area. They pointed out that there was no electric transformer in the Basic Health Unit (BHU) in Kahi. They also complained that the local elders were not taken into confidence by the police while conducting search operations.

The deputy commissioner directed the concerned departments to address complains of the local people. He said teaching is a noble profession and teachers deserve a lot of respect. However, he said, the negligent teachers will face action. He said the administration will always welcome positive criticism and take necessary action.

DPO Asif Gohar said police needs cooperation of people in its drive against criminal elements. He said police highly respects the citizens and also expect them to cooperate especially in campaign against drug mafia. He said protection of life and dignity of the citizen is the top priority of police.
