MINGORA: Rejecting Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s claim that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government has failed to bring any change in Khyber-Pakhtunkwa, PTI Chairman Imran Khan said on Sunday that “change can’t be seen from a helicopter”.

“The K-P government has brought about a positive change in education, healthcare and police, which the premier could not see,” Imran told a rally in the Saidu Sharif city of Swat.

Two days earlier, the prime minister told a rally in Swat that PTI had failed to implement its slogan of ‘change’ and that it was the PML-N government that would build a ‘Naya Pakhtunkhwa’.

Imran hit back, saying that “the prime minister could not see the change which the provincial government has brought in K-P from his helicopter”.

He said roads and motorways could not make a nation strong and that the PTI was committed to building a nation by modernising education. “Only education can assure development and prosperity. It is a matter of embarrassment for the federal government that around 25 million children in the country are out of school.”

Highlighting the achievements of the K-P government, he said the Health Regularity Act had been passed by the provincial assembly.

The PTI chief commended the K-P police for apprehending the killers of slain MPA Soran Singh and said the K-P police was progressing at a rapid pace.

Panamagate issue

Imran also lashed out at PM Nawaz for ‘resorting to lies’ over the Panama Paper leaks. “Our prime minister is turning a deaf ear to the public demand for probing into the Panama Leaks and his family’s offshore companies,” he said.

syed & syed | 6 years ago | Reply Did KPK government made small dams on streams that would have been visible. How many hospitals and technical training institutes were built. Killing, abduction, rape is going on as in other provinces. Education is a subject which can not be seen. Still IK have time to concentrate on important projects instead of giving sermons.
sabi | 6 years ago | Reply you give them microscope so that they can see the change.
