PESHAWAR: President of Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz’s Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa chapter and prime minister’s adviser Amir Muqam has said the residents of the province have realised the ‘cosmetic’ nature of change brought about by the PTI-led K-P.

“K-P Chief Minister Pervez Khattak and [PTI chief] Imran Khan must realise that people have come to know that only the PML-N has any future [in the country],” he told reporters on Sunday. “Even the PTI’s own members are joining the PML-N as people have realised their [PTI’s] idea of change is cosmetic.”

Muqam alleged that huge amounts were being embezzled under the Sehat Sahulat Cards scheme. He claimed there was a huge difference between the amount spent on medicines for patients and the amount withdrawn.

Referring to the chairman of Lady Reading Hospital’s Board of Governors, Nausherwan Barki, he asked what the K-P chief minister and provincial health minister were doing when someone from the US was running the hospital.

Muqam denied allegations that the PML-N closed down schools for a political gathering held in Shangla on Saturday. “Our gathering was held after 2pm and I wonder which schools carry on instruction after 2pm,” Muqam said, adding: “I have no authority to close schools. This allegation must be probed and I will resign if proven guilty.”

He said the PTI led K-P government was leveling such allegations out of frustration as the PML-N was gaining popularity in the province with each passing day.

Earlier addressing a gathering, Muqam said PTI lawmaker Ziaullah Afridi’s brother Hidayatullah Afridi will join the PML-N at ‘a huge gathering’ to be held in Peshawar on May 12. “This show of power will prove that people have realised PTI’s change is just cosmetic,” he said.
