Petition filed against KP CM in accountability commission


PESHAWAR: A petition has been filed against Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Pervaiz Khattak in the province’s Ehtesab Commission, Geo News reported on Thursday.

The reference has been filed by MPA Zia-ul-Afridi, who was previously affiliated with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).

In the petition, Zia-ul-Afridi challenged the appointments of managing director of Bank of Khyber and CEO Pakhtunkhwa Energy Development Organisation (Pedo) and claimed they were illegal.

Both the appointments were approved by Pervaiz Khattak, therefore, strict action should be taken against the chief minister, the petition added.

The petition also states that Khattak used both the officers for personal gains which caused a loss worth billions of rupees.
