PESHAWAR: Naib Nazim District Tank Aftab Baloch has demanded of Chief Secretary Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Azam Khan to order inquiry against Superintendent Engineer (SE) Public Health Engineering (PHE) Department Younas Khattak over alleged corrupt practices in the department.
Addressing a press conference here at Peshawar Press Club (PPC) on Thursday, he said that some months ago almost 200 people headed by the concerned Nazim had staged a protest opposite cantonment Railway Station against the Superintendent Engineer Tank Younas over his corruption.
Later he said the protest camp was removed after assurance from the provincial Information Minister Shah Farman that the official would be transferred within three-day.
He said that two important demands, the protesters kept before the information minister, was to transfer the engineer and initiate inquiry against him and second was to provide water for the residents in the district.
“Both the demands of the protesters were accepted by the provincial minister, but none was fulfilled,” he lamented.
The superintendent engineer, he alleged did not attend office however he was drawing his salary while people particularly women fetch water from far-flung areas to meet their domestic needs.
He, therefore, demanded of KP Information Minister Shah Farman to fulfill his promise and also Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Pervez Khan Khattak to issue order of transferring the SE, failing to which, the people of Tank would be compelled to stage a sit-in outside Bani Gala till fulfillment of their demands, and all the responsibility would be rested with the provincial government, he warned. …APP
