Free technical education for 1,500 youth every year
Peshawar: Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Ameer Haider Khan Hoti inaugurated a project
here on Wednesday to impart free technical and vocational education to youth in
the reputed institutions of the country to alleviate poverty in the province.
A total 1,500 youth would be imparted technical and vocational training every
year under the project, costing Rs230, said a handout. "The government would
bear all expenses," Mr Hoti told a function, held at Chief Minister House to
inaugurate the project.
He said that it was third poverty reduction project after Bacha Khan Khpal

presently it is also facing insurgency and militancy. Our forefathers had

"It is very challenging to live in such difficult times as terrorists are
targeting innocent children and elderly people. However, our people are standing
like rock against all such evils," the chief minister added.
He said that some elements were tying to mislead the youth but government was
not oblivious to the situation. "To counter the evil designs of such people, the
government has accelerated socio-economic activities," he said.
Mr Hoti said that Khyber Pakhtunkhwa was neither poor nor short of resources
as it had all natural resources, including hydel power potential, which if
exploited could change the fate of its people.
"Keeping this fact in mind, two hydel projects - one each at Mataltan and
Lavi - will be inaugurated in December and January next," he said.
He said that they would develop the sectors of tourism and minerals. "The
countries, which took part in the first and second world wars, have also stood
on their feet and developed themselves so why can't we," he asked.
He denied the notion that government was initiating projects for taking
credit, saying they didn't want to get any political mileage out of it rather
they wanted to develop the province on sound footings.
"To get maximum benefits from the God gifted natural resources, we have
planned to set up Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Oil and Gas Company on the basis of
private-public partnership. Dawn
