Pakistan Observer - - NA­TIONAL -

PE­SHA WAR—Khy­ber Pakhtunkhwa Assem­bly Mon­day bull­dozed ques­tions re­gard­ing nepo­tism and favouritism in the dis­tri­bu­tion of granti­naid in mosques and sem­i­nar­ies. In ar­gu­ments in favour of his ques­tions, Maulana Fazal Ghafoor of JUIF crit­i­cized the dis­tri­bu­tion of granti­naid on po­lit­i­cal ba­sis and asked the Provin­cial Min­is­ter for Auqaf for telling cri­te­ria for such distri- bu­tion. He said that no mosque in his con­stituency was pro­vided the grant and plead for re­fer­ring his ques­tion to the con­cerned stand­ing com­mit­tee of the house.

But, on the other hand, the Ja­maate-Is­lami ( JI) af­fil­i­ated Min­is­ter for Auqaf and Re­li­gious Af­fairs, Haji Habibur-Rehman re­jected the al­le­ga­tions and said that from 300 to 350 sem­i­nar­ies have been pro­vided the fund in a transparent man­ner and ruled out the ig­nor­ing of any dis­trict in this re­gard. How­ever, he said that he can­not do any­thing in case of not re­ceiv­ing any ap­pli­ca­tion.

The JUIF MPA ex­pressed dis­sat­is­fac­tion over the an­swer and de­manded of the Chief Min­is­ter Pervez Khattak, who was also present in the house to di­rect con­duct­ing in­quiry into the dis­tri­bu­tion of the funds of Auqaf Depart­ment for po­lit­i­cal pur­pose.—
