PESHAWAR: Pakistan and Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa in particular are under a government which is totally disorganised and running affairs in a haphazard way, said Awami National Party central leader Asfandyar Wali Khan.
The manner in which PTI government has handled the Bus Rapid Transit Programme speaks of its competence, the ANP supremo said.
He said that due to the regional geo-political situation ANP is the sole party which can secure the constitutional rights of Pakhtuns and they have to come under the banner of the sole representative of people.
Wali Khan stated this while meeting with the former provincial secretary general of the ANP Muhammad Saleem Advocate in Wali Bagh Charssada on Sunday, which was also attended by the central secretary of the party Mian Iftikhar Hussain.
He said that with the takeover of the PTI regime in centre and province the troubles of the Pakhtuns have increased manifold and through ill-planning of the BRT project, provincial capital has turned into the most disorganised city of the province.
He came down hard on PTI leadership in centre and province and added that through ghost appointments of teachers in education department have revealed their real change, while the provincial and central leadership had committed technical corruptions in all institutions including BRT.
“We have never tolerated and accepted the political victimisation of political figures through National Accountability Bureau (NAB) and if they really mean accountability it should be across the board,” Asfandyar said.
The former provincial secretary of the party Muhammad Saleem Advocate announced his rejoining the party and added that he had set aside the differences and would serve the Pakhtuns of the province with spirit and zeal.
