In her second tenure Muhtarima Benzir Bhutto Shaheed as Prime Minister of Pakistan, came to Kohat and had granted ten million rupees for beautification of Kohat, along with it she had inaugurated gas provision facility for people of Kohat. Prior to her rule women in Kohat city were using kerosene oil cookers in their kitchens, and women in village areas were using wood for cooking. Even today in remote villages of Kohat women are using wood to cook food, while in their effort to burn the wood for cooking purposes women use their lungs to blow air from mouth while fanning the fire and get lot of carbon in their lungs from smoke emitting wood. Children sitting around women also get affected with the smoke of half burning wood. During her second tenure gas connections were provided to the people living in Kohat city and gradually people living in suburban areas of Kohat had also got the gas connections.
In Gumbat and its surrounding villages gas connections are also approved but the dilemma is that elected leadership of Kohat is fighting for the inauguration rights, MNA Mr. Dilawar Shah wants to inaugurate the provision of gas facility, MPA and minister of housing Mr. Amjid Afridi is also interested in doing the same and both are from the same political party, in tussle between both lungs of women and children living in these villages are at stake, provision of gas connection is delayed because of the tussle between both.
