“Everyone knows about the security situation in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and the KP chief minister must call an emergency meeting of the apex committee,” Kundi said.

The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government was bragging about its education reforms whereas 26 universities in the province did not have a vice chancellor, he added.

The governor underlined that efforts were being made to solve the problems of the people of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and give them rights, whereas a task force was being formed, and education experts would be appointed to mull over reforms to improve the education system.

He added that development work would start on the Chakdara-Dir-Chitral Motorway project soon.
