Khattak admits failure to bring ‘change’ in KP


Says what Imran promised to do in 90 days can’t be done in five years

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Pervez Khattak on Sunday admitted to having failed in fulfilling the promises made to the people of the province, saying “the things Imran Khan pledged to do in 90 days cannot be completed even in five years”.

Speaking at a press conference, Khattak said the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chairman seeks completion of years of work in days. He added that even five years were not enough for the promises Khan had asked to fulfil within 90 days.

He admitted that the PTI-led provincial government could not achieve all targets in the province, saying there were several impediments in its way.

“Some people do not admit their mistakes, but we are not like them,” he added.

Imran is a leader who believes in concrete results and wants tasks to be performed in the least amount of time, he explained.

Shrugging off opposition by the disgruntled party members, the chief minister rejected the impression that there was an uprising within the provincial chapter of the party.

“PTI stands united and all of us will work together. There is no rebellion within the party’s rank and file. Groups often emerge in parties and it is an internal matter,” he said.
