Amir | 6 years ago | Reply I have a lot of confidence that IK will do something better for KPK and Pakistan but at the moment he is wasting all his energy in crying foul about election and rigging etc. Please Sir do something for the country as a lot of people are not interested in knowing the election rigging happened in the election more than two years ago. At the moment PTI has none of the achievements in KPK to show it to the masses if election happens tomorrow so better wake up and do something in remaining 3 years in KPK Gov plzzzzzzzzzzzz
Common Pakistani | 6 years ago | Reply Interestingly, National Assembly and 3 Provinces stats are given but ET omitted KPK and FATA stats. Must be a reason.
