ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) - The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Ali Amin Gandapur said that he will not compromise on the share of his province.

Speaking to media after attending the 10th meeting of the Special Investment Facilitation Council (SIFC) held in Islamabad, he urged the centre to release the funds of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa immediately.

“We’ll welcome the investment coming through SIFC. We can increase our revenue by introducing some reforms in the mining,” said Gandapur.
