KHYBER AGENCY Repeated transfers of surgeon of Khyber agency have cast negative impact on the administrative business in the Health Department. Transfer of on-duty agency surgeon will further make the situation worse and will multiply miseries of the tribal people. They have asked the stakeholders to let the present agency surgeon serve the tribesmen otherwise they have no other option but to stage protest demonstrations in front of the Governors House and FATA secretariat. This was stated by the local political leaders, elites and Maliks including Qari Jihad shah, Sarwar, agency councilor Hazrat wali, Malik Mian jan here in joint press statement in Jamrud Press Club. They flayed the regular transfer of the agency surgeon of Khyber and said that it had badly affected the health-related activities in hospitals and Basic Health Units (BHUs) besides creation of an administrative vacuum there. They were of the view that after Dr. Shakeel, the FATA Health Secretariat had posted a junior doctor, Dr. Qudoos as Agency Surgeon but due to his lacking administrative experience he was replaced with professional and experienced Dr. Azam wazir as agency surgeon. They, however, expressed their disappointment and said that despite repeated warnings by the high-ups, the outgoing agency surgeon had not handed over the vehicles specified for the agency surgeon and started attempts for his reappointment. Corrupt officials in the Agency Health Department considered the present agency surgeon against their interest and, therefore, they started rolling up their slaves to transfer him, they lamented. They demanded of the Governor Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Additional Chief Secretary FATA, Additional Political Agent Khyber to take an immediate notice of the matter.
