At a meeting of the provincial cabinet that CM Khan led, he said that the dam will help make electricity, bring back to life land that has been unusable because of a lack of water, and reduce damage from floods. Barrister Muhammad Ali Saif, Special Assistant to Chief Minister on Information, said that the CM has told the authorities to finish the ongoing survey of flood victims’ losses as soon as possible so that they can get back on their feet.
The chief minister has told the government to get people out of streams, river banks, and water channels so that there aren’t any more damages or losses. During the meeting, the cabinet also approved other projects, such as the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Conservancy and Biosphere Reserve Rules 2022, the promotion of Tehsil Razar, District Swabi, to the status of Sub Division, the election of the convener of the Tehsil City Council under the Election Commission, and the payment of salaries and allowances to Local Government Representatives.
