Dear Mr President,
Assalamalaikum. Today, it truly hurts to be a somewhat privileged Pakhtun when one looks at the general population of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa living in miserable conditions. To my mind it amounts to be a sin if the somewhat privileged Pakhtuns do not speak for the downtrodden population of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and FATA (Federally Administered Tribal Areas). On my part, I will not hesitate doing that.

2. I am a thoroughbred Pakistani and would like to always talk of Pakistan as a whole, yet, the very pathetic conditions of my home Province Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and FATA have forced me to write this letter to you in order to emphasise the need to bring about a master developmental plan for Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and the FATA which will have to include mega projects of all sorts. Annexure A to this letter only spells out the basic projects around which must revolve the long term master plan.

3. Pakistan owes a special attention towards Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and FATA for all the sacrifices that the Pakhtuns have always willingly rendered for Pakistan. The Pakhtuns now demand peace, progress and prosperity for themselves and their coming generations. The Pakhtuns must mow have easy access to justice, quality education, health as well as social services, a modern communications (motorway) network and to employment compatible to their educational qualifications within their own Province. To achieve all this and to arrest the simmering tensions developing deep within the people of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and FATA there is now an urgent need to build mega projects revolving around the abundant mineral and energy resources produced locally. » More: Letter to Mr Asif Ali Zardari, President of Pakistan alongwith an Annexure Outlining Basic Uplift Projects for Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and FATA
