The Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) provincial leader and former Member National Assembly Akhunzada Chattan has accused the deputy commissioner of Bajaur tribal district of massive corruption and demanded the government to remove him from his post.
Addressing a press conference at Bajaur Press Club on Friday, Akhunzada Chattan said if the deputy commissioner was not removed by March, then the PPP will initiate ‘DC Hatao’ (sack DC) campaign in the tribal district.
The PPP leader alleged that Deputy Commissioner Usman Mehsud was responsible for the emergence of polio and Leishmania cases in Bajaur and death of children in at the government hospital. He said the emergence of polio cases in Bajaur brought bad name for the country. He said action must be taken against negligent officials, particularly the DC. The former MNA said the last polio case in Bajaur surfaced in 2011, but now after the gap of seven years, several polio cases are surfacing in Bajaur after Usman Mehsud took charge as DC.
