MARDAN - Chief Minister, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Ameer Haider Khan Hoti on Sunday said that having difference of opinion was the right of every person, as it was the beauty of democracy, but it should not damage the democracy. He said political forces could only serve the people when there was democracy in the country. He said, If democracy gets finished then how can we serve the masses. He expressed these views while addressing a public gathering at Mardan Medical Complex (MMC) after laying the foundation stone of Shaheed Banazir Bhutto Children Hospital. Senior Minister Raheem Dad Khan, ANP district General Secretary Imran Manduri also addressed the meeting. Javeed Muhammad Khel, senior vice president, MPA Haji Ahmed Khan Bahadur, Commissioner Mardan Muhammad Adil Khan and other notables of the district were also present on this occasion. Hoti said they had been struggling for provincial autonomy in order to get their identity for the last 63 years, adding that they gave great sacrifices for this purpose. In the past, some people committed with us that they will give us our identity, but they did not fulfil their commitment. Due to the support of Pakistan Peoples Party Parliamentarian (PPPP) and President Asif Ali Zardari, we succeeded to achieve our identity and provincial autonomy. Anyone who supports and helps Pakhtuns, Pakhtuns do not leave them alone in difficult times. If any difficult time comes on PPPP or President Asif Ali Zardari, ANP will be fully supporting them, he said. The chief minister said Shaheed Benazir Bhutto gave sacrifice for Pakistan and democracy and owing to her sacrifices democracy was restored in the country. Her family also gave great sacrifices for Pakistan and democracy, therefore we have given name of Shaheed Benazir Bhutto to this children hospital, he said. He said the PPPP and ANP government was successfully continued in the province and it was owing to their good coordination that he was laying the foundation stone of Shaheed Benazir Bhutto Children Hospital. There is no government children hospital in the whole province and the people have to take their children to private clinics, doctors and hospitals. Even people have to take their children to other provinces. This government children hospital will be the first government children hospital of the province and it will be a 200-bed hospital. It will be five-storied hospital. The people of Mardan, Malakand Agency, Dir, Swabi, Buner and other surrounding areas will be facilitated with treatment at this hospital, he said. The chief minister said that Rs 12 billion would be spent on this hospital. After two months, I will also lay the foundation stone of a children hospital in Peshawar, he vowed. He said with the struggle of Dr Zia-ul-Islam, the project director Bacha Khan Medical College, the achievements gained by Bacha Khan Medical College in a short span were unprecedented in Pakistans history. He said from January dentistry classes would also be started there. He said work on phase-III of MMC and DHQ Hospital would also be started and a bridge would also be constructed near MMC at Mardan-Nowshera Road, so that the people coming to the hospital on foot could easily cross the road through it. He said the PPPP and ANP would have minor differences on issues, but they were united on big aims. He said if any difficult time was faced by PPPP and President Asif Ali Zardari, the ANP would stand shoulder-to-shoulder with them. He said the people who wanted early elections should wait for 2013, as election would be held in 2013. He said through Bacha Khan Khudroozghar Scheme, loan of Rs 1 lakh without any mark-up was given to several youths for businesses in the last year and 99 per cent loans were refunded to the banks. He said it was the first scheme of Pakistans history, in which 99 per cent recovery was made on time, adding that this way they would give jobs to 30,000 to 40,000 people. He added that top 10 students of government schools at matric and intermediate levels, who were poor and could not afford expenses of further education, were being given Rs 10,000 to Rs 15,000. He said the traffic flow would start on the eastern bypass from January and other bypasses would also be completed soon. He said Mardan would be the only district that would have a ring road in its surroundings. Speaking on the occasion, Senior Minister Raheem Dad Khan said on to the vision of provincial and federal leaders the allied government successfully continued functioning in the province and federation. He said Nawaz Sharif and Shahbaz Sharif did not learn anything from exile and imprisonment. Shahbaz Sharif and Nawaz Sharif were limited to singing ghazal of Habib Jalib, which he had written against these people, he said. He said they wanted to strengthen democracy, as it was restored after long struggle and sacrifices. He said that instead of several difficulties the government appropriated Rs 70 billion for developmental works, which is the huge amount of Pakistan politics history. He said the government would complete its term and elections would be held on time.
