On the issue of people suffering due to ceasefire violation from the Pakistani side,Khan said, "Due to our unfortunate neighbour, the people living in border areas are suffering since 1947. We have been building community and individual bunkers along the border. We are also building bunkers near schools, hospitals, and government buildings."
"I will take stock of the ongoing development projects and will see if they are progressing at a good speed or not," he added.
After meeting with Khan, BDC Chairman Nazeer Ahmed said, " We had a friendly and productive discussion. We raised our concerns regarding daily firing from the Pakistan side. He also gave us assurance of providing 'Backward Area' certificate to the region along the border.
DDC member Chaudhury Abdul Gani said, "We discussed every department in detail with him. We told him about the loss of precious lives on a daily basis in firings. 60-70 per cent of the constituency is along the border. They have assured us to bring the development projects to the grassroots levels."
