Pakistan Observer - - NATIONAL -

CHARSADA—The Khy­ber Pakhtunkhwa Gov­er­nor Engr. Iqbal Za­far Jha­gra paid trib­ute to the brav­ery and sac­ri­fices of of­fi­cers and Jawans of Fron­tier Con­stab­u­lary. He said that the en­tire na­tion stood united with our se­cu­rity forces in the war against ter­ror­ism to pro­tect the mother­land from the ex­ter­nal and ex­ter­nal en­e­mies.

He ex­pressed these views while ad­dress­ing as chief guest at the pass­ing out pa­rade of jawans of Fron­tier Con­stab­u­lary at the Train­ing Cen­tre, Shabqadar, in District Charsada on Wed­nes­day. Com­man­dant Fron­tier Con­stab­u­lary, Li­aqat Ali Khan, se­nior of­fi­cials and rel­a­tives of the re­cruits were also present on the oc­ca­sion.

He said our se­cu­rity forces are fight­ing the war against ter­ror­ism with the spirit and be­lief for the sovereignty and in­tegrity of the coun­try. “We are proud of those of­fi­cers and Jawans of our se­cu­rity forces who laid down their lives for pro­tec­tion of mother­land and the Na­tion has great re­gard for the se­cu­rity forces and held their sac­ri­fices in high es­teem,” he said.

On this oc­ca­sion, 1975 Jawans of Fron­tier Con­stab­u­lary passed out af­ter com­plet­ing their 9-months train­ing in the academy. The Gov­er­nor an­nounced the amount of Rs 2 mil­lion for the train­ing of re­cruits and Rs 1 mil­lion for the wel­fare of the Fron­tier Con­stab­u­lary and also dis­trib­uted cer­tifi­cates and tro­phies among the po­si­tion-hold­ers and best re­cruits.

He in­spected the pa­rade and con­grat­u­lated suc­cess­ful re­cruits. A smartly tuned con­tin­gent of Fron­tier Con­stab­u­lary pre­sented guard of hon­our to the gov­er­nor. While ad- dress­ing the pass­ing out pa­rade, the Gov­er­nor urged the re­cruits to en­sure the pro­tec­tion of the coun­try adding that great re­spon­si­bil­i­ties lied on the shoul­ders of the passed out re­cruits to make the most of their ex­per­tise and po­ten­tial while per­form­ing their du­ties with com­mit­ment.

Gov­er­nor said peace has been re­stored in the coun­try due to the great sac­ri­fices ren­dered by our se­cu­rity forces adding that main­te­nance of last­ing peace was the top pri­or­ity of the in­cum­bent gov­ern­ment. He said the role of our se­cu­rity forces in the war against ter­ror­ism and to bring­ing peace to the re­gion was ad­mirable.

The gov­er­nor lauded sac­ri­fices ren­dered by the FC per­son­nel and said that the mar­tyred sol­diers de­served tributes, adding that their sac­ri­fices would not go in vain and would be re­mem­bered with dig­nity. He said that those FC troops who laid down their lives for pro­tec­tion of mother­land were in fact the real he­roes. He held his as­sur­ance that he will con­tact the fed­eral gov­ern­ment and other con­cerned quar­ters to fur­ther en­hance the ca­pac­ity build­ing and train­ing of the troops and to re­dress their prob­lems on pri­or­ity.

Ear­lier, FC Com­man­dant Li­auqat Khan ap­praised the Gov­er­nor about the train­ing and prob­lems of the force. He said that FC was also per­form­ing duty at op­er­a­tional ar­eas in FATA.

On his ar­rival at the FC Train­ing Cen­tre, the Gov­er­nor was re­ceived by the Com­man­dant FC, Li­aqat Ali Khan and other se­nior of­fi­cers. Mean­while, the Gov­er­nor Iqbal za­far Jha­gra vis­ited Mardan and in­au­gu­rated Sweet Home-an or­phan­age un­der the Pak­istan Baitul Maal. Pak­istan Baitul Mal Man­ag­ing Direc­tor Bar­ris­ter Abid Wa­heed Sheikh was also present on the oc­ca­sion.

Ad­dress­ing the in­au­gu­ral cer­e­mony, the Gov­er­nor said the in­cum­bent gov­ern­ment of Prime Min­is­ter Muham­mad Nawaz Sharif was keen to al­le­vi­ate the poverty, back­ward­ness and re­duce the sense of de­pri­va­tion of the de­pressed sec­tion of the so­ci­ety.—APP
