Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) senior leader Arbab Khizer Hayat Khan has challenged Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan for a public debate on the performance of his party’s government in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP).
“I will quit politics forever if I fail to prove that the PTI-led government in KP is inefficient, corrupt and a failure” claimed Arbab in a statement issued on Friday.
He further claimed that the days of the PTI government in KP were numbered. “KP Chief Minister Pervez Khattak’s government will be gone in a matter of days,” said the PML-N leader, adding that the KP government’s ministers, advisers and MPAs are busy in internal wrangling and this situation may lead to the fall of the “corrupt government” at any moment.
“Imran’s protest against election rigging is in fact an attempt to hide the weaknesses and failures of the PTI-led government in KP,” Arbab opined.
He said that ‘patwaris’ and police were still ruling KP and the ministers were getting bribes for transfers and postings of government servants, adding that blue eyed officers in the provincial bureaucracy were being favoured in province.
Arbab claimed to possess credible proof of massive rigging in KP in the 2013 general elections. He said almost all PTI MPAs made it to the KP Assembly through rigging.
“Khan is neither sincere with Pakistanis nor with KP,” claimed Arbab.
“The people of Pakistan have shattered his dreams and now he frustrated and disappointed” said Arbab, who believes that Khan’s protest against rigging will lead him to nothing but embarrassment.
He claimed that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s government was strong as a rock and would complete its constitutional tenure.
