The chief minister said that the annual cost of the promotion package would be Rs650 million, which would be approved in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa budget for 2014-15.
However, he requested the clerks to extend their support to the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf-led provincial government in eliminating corruption in the province.
He reiterated that the PTI-led government would not allow any person to indulge in corruption.
He said that the government was working to reduce the gap between the haves and the have-nots.
`The class-based system of education is the root cause of ills and the government has taken solid steps to remove this practice by introducing a uniform English medium system in all the government schools of the province,` he said.
Mr Khattak said that the previ-ous governments had taken votes to come to power, but they ignored people`s welfare while PTI was striving to fulfil all the promises made during the election campaign.
`We are ready to devolve power through local government system and leaders at local level will do all the development works,` he said.
Mr Khattak said that the local government elections would be held in November this year and the government was ready to hand over full powers to elected representatives at grassroots for the welfare of poor people.
The chief minister said that the PTI-led government had initiated anti-encroachment campaign across the province. He said that costly land of 150 kanals of Nathiagali had been retrieved from influential people.
He said that about 200 play-grounds would be constructed across the province to provide better facilities to the youngsters and remove frustration from the society. `Houses would be built for the journalists of Nowshera and Peshawar in journalists` colonies, he said.
Mr Khattak claimed that positive changes had been felt in the police department as they had stopped all kinds of interference in matters related to the police.
`Transfer and favoritism have been strictly banned in the police department and no minister can use illegal powers in this matter, he added.
He said that they had stopped development works for eight months to remove the corruption culture from the departments and now they would start all kinds of development works with a proper strategy.
