He said we would not take loans that would over burden the resource base of the province. He said that the province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa was not a feasible province but the CPEC made it the most feasible province adding that he had already signed an MoU during his visit to China for the provision of solar kit for 10 thousands schools and 400 hospitals. He also talked about his government pro investment policy and added that these agreements were held transparently. He warned against any illegal dealing otherwise he would cancel the agreements.
Pervez Khattak said he would have made a headway much before but unfortunately the federal government obstructed their efforts. He also had a fruitful meeting with the Chinese vice minister Foreign Affairs, where he assured him complete implementation on these projects. The next few months were very crucial therefore he formed a committee to oversight the process of implementation on these projects.
