The governor had sought legislative backing on the establishment of the state Infrastructure Development Fund (IF-K) for the execution of capital projects under the public private partnership.

Th governor in a message dated October 19, 2016 which was read by the Speaker, Dr Ali Ahmad, said the board had been fully set up in line with the law establishing the IF-K.

He added that the board, in addition, had ratified the appointments of the bureau and matters relating to the IF-K in accordance with Section 18(1) and Section 10 of the bureau law.

The governor therefore sought for the house's confirmation and acceptance of the IF-K to be fully operational.

The house had summoned six state public officers over the issues relating to the confirmation and establishment of the IF-K.
