Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Pervez Khattak has said that the unique style of pro people governance of PTI rendered Nawaz Sharif, Zardari, Maulana Fazlur Rahman and Asfandyar alongwith their cronies irrelevant at the political landscape of the country and province. His government was all set to give stipend to “Paish Imam” of mosques. The Rapid Bus Transit will see the light of the day within the time tag. PTI fast emerged the sole political force to get majority seats in the coming elections, he added. He said that in the given circumstances, there was no government at federal level legitimizing fresh elections in the country. He warned against any delay in the merger of FATA into Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
He was addressing different Jirgas and delegations at Chief Minister House Peshawar. Prominent political workers of different parties announced joining PTI at the occasion. He favoured fresh elections in the country as there was no government visible at federal level. The incompetence and the deteriorating economy indicated a loose control at federal government by the present rulers therefore the situation warranted early elections.
Chief Minister said that the merger of FATA into Khyber Pakhtunkhwa was advocated by all political forces with the exception of a few who had their own interest to the existing system in FATA. It will be injustice if the merger was delayed, he added. Pervez Khattak said that the past rulers pushed the country to the quagmire because they had nothing to do with the problems of poor.
They did record corruption that created multi-faceted challenges that was the main reason the people voted against them. In view of the growing popularity of PTI, the traditional political forces on the basis of their poor performance in the past were struggling for their survival in the political arena adding that the sooner they realize their irrelevance the better for the poor and hapless people of the country. He was certain that these political forces had becoming history and the present belonged to the youth of PTI.
Chief Minister was against the three layers of education that included English medium, Urdu medium and Madrasa education advocating uniformity upgrading the Urdu system of education and mainstreaming the madrasa education so that all should have an equal playing field in the future scheme of things. His government was about to start stipend to Paish Imam of mosques making them independent to lookafter their families and they could not be exploited by religio-political forces on one pretext or other. His government introduced Nazira Quran, right from primary level to the 6th class and translation of Quran compulsory upto 12th class.
