KP & pti? | 6 years ago | Reply Initially there was alot of expectation from IK and TPI. That it will be honest in KP matters and will establish the true picture of Naya Pakistan. But unfortunately it was just the wrong expectation. Now after years in Government the IK and PTI is busy in dirty-politics as usual.It is not serious and unable in managing a single province (KP). So how it would run the whole country. In the power crisis and theft the main responsibility goes to KP Govt. Simple is that PTI is fail in KP and it has no future ahead. The highest corruption, mismanagement, un competency, power politics, power theft and just waiting time.
