The jirga held its meeting at the district headquarters complex Tajazai on Friday to develop consensus among the elders against those elements who are creating obstacles in college project.
“A local tribal elder Aslam Khan Eesakkhel at the behest of Saifullah brothers has got a stay order from a court with the aim to prolong the process of launching work on the project”, alleged ANP senior vice president Mumraiz Khan on the occasion.
He told that the college was approved by chief minister Ameer Haider Khan Hoti on the request of ANP MPA Yasmeen Zia and her spouse advocate Sadruddin, saying that it will be built on 500 kanal land provided by the residents of Abakhel free of cost.
He alleged that Saifullah brothers wanted to deprive youths of the district from getting quality education near their homes, that was why they were opposing setting up of cadet college on lands of Abakhel people near district headquarters complex Tajazai.
He appealed to the Chief Justices of Supreme Court and Peshawar High Court to order vacating stay order as it would help to launch construction work on college project.
Another elder Haji Ameer Nawaz Khan, the brother of PML-N MPA Munawar Khan appreciated the residents of Abakhel for provision of free land for cadet college project and said that concerted efforts would be made to start work on it without any further delay.
“It is a public interest project, therefore the stay order should be vacated”, he maintained.
He strongly criticised influential Saifullahs and held them responsible for the backwardness of Lakki district.
Among others JUI’s district chief Maulana Abdul Rahim, former union councils’ nazims Juhar Muhammad and Maulana Asghar Ali, Maulana Bashir Haqqani, Maulana Abdul Wakil Bettanni, Ajmal Khan, Ismaeel Khan, Hazrat Ali and Jamil Khan also spoke on the occasion.
