NOWSHERA: Liaquat Khattak, the provincial irrigation minister, who is the brother of Pervez Khattak, the federal defence minister, called himself an impotent minister and tried to speak with Prime Minister Imran Khan to teach him the truth.
“I want to tell Prime Minister Imran Khan every single thing about who runs my ministry,” he said while addressing a public meeting here on Saturday in Pir Sabaq village.
The minister said the nation had voted for them to bring an end to the country’s corruption, but there were some elements involved in corruption.
I will no longer stay still. The time has come for me, he said, to make my party leader and Prime Minister Imran Khan aware of the truth.
Former Nowshera tehsil nazi Ahad Khan Khattak, addressing the crowd, said that retaliatory acts against their comrades should be avoided. He said that the Tehsil Nazi election will be contested and he was not involved in the PK-63 by-election.
Separately, Federal Defense Minister Pervez Khattak, speaking at various meetings in Nowshera, said that the Indian occupation of Kashmir would not last long and that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi would slip into his own trap.
“If Narendra Modi continues to continue his policies against minorities in India, India will split into different states,” he said.
He said that in occupied Kashmir, the mistreatment of Muslims had unified all the minorities across India.
Mr Khattak maintained that, in 35 years of his service, he had never engaged in vindictive politics and had always represented the people. He said that he had completed billions of rupees worth of mega development projects and tried to solve people’s basic problems in all constituencies, including PK-63.
The former KP chief minister urged the people, taking into account the current situation in the country and on the borders, to shun differences and forge unity.
Mr Khattak said he had always been valued by the people of Nowshera. Nowshera district was the only district in Pakistan where most of the people’s problems were solved, he said.
