PESHAWAR - Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Pervez Khattak has said that the era of loot and plunder is over and now even a most powerful person in the government cannot think of stealing or wasting meagre chunk of resources of the hard earned money of the people.
He revealed that PTI-led coalition government is going to introduce a new law wherein a citizen identifying looted money will get share on its recovery.

The chief minister said that this is just a slow beginning of the change and it will take speed when Ehtesab Commission is established, basic human laws like Right to Service (RTS) are implemented and the government officials become fully subservient to the public service due to fear of punishment.
He said that his party chief Imran Khan wanted supremacy of law, merit and justice in the province at all costs. He said that PTI-led coalition government made record legislation in few months that could not be made even in five-year regimes in the past.
