Peshawar, May 14 (ANI): Pakistan’s North West Frontier Province Minister for Information, Iftikhar Hussain, on Thursday said normalcy has restored in different parts of Buner up to Dagar area where, he added, the security forces have regained complete control.

The News quoted him as saying that one million people have become confined to Swat due to the curfew in the valley.

“The government is making its all out efforts to provide every possible facility to the IDPs taking refuge inside and outside the camps,” he said, adding these camps will be electrified within the next 24 hours.

Hussain opposed the raising of power tariff by 86 paisa per unit by NEPRA, saying the provincial government rejects the decision. (ANI)
