    It is useless in a dictatorship to have provincial councils.

    Yes it is a good suggestion. But some sort of devolution is required only to the north but not to the east and rest of the country.

    No discrimination is reasonable. Must be uniform and alike, all over.

    Yes get rid of useless hangers on and transfer administration to District Secretaries. Government within a government for provinces is destructive and a waste of money. It only encourages sleeze and corruption.
