LG system in KP will be role model for country: Imran
19 August, 2013
PESHAWAR: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan said on Sunday the local government system in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa would be a role model for the country.
"The system we are bringing in will be beneficial to the residents of this province," Imran told a meeting. He said the country does not lack resources but what it lacks is good governance.
Earlier, the meeting unveiled the 'Right to Information' law giving public access to official documents to make the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf-led coalition government transparent. "This is a revolutionary step and part of PTI manifesto," Imran Khan, who flew in from Karachi to attend the meeting, said.
"When the people know where their tax money is spent they will pay taxes and this law will help people know where their tax money is spent." To make the governance even better the KP government is also considering conflict of interest law, the PTI leader said.
