He asked the elders to discuss the question of the delay in gas and electricity supply with federal state minister Shehryar Afridi at a ceremony in Charghari on Wednesday.

He reported that the Peshawar High Court had ruled that 10% of oil and gas royalty funds should be used in the development field, but that the order had not been carried through.

Mr Shahdad said that the state minister was the chairman of the committee on incentive, social security, and royalty funds, but that he had not given his constituency a single penny in the previous seven years.
