PESHAWAR - The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government has turned a deaf ear to problems of common people, because it is nowadays busy in calculating rodents’ their size and guessing their age, Amir Muqam, Advisor to PM alleged on Sunday.

It seems that the PTI-led provincial government has nothing to do except running after rodents. Oddly, passing comments on rodents’ age and size is the only serious work being done by provincial government these days, Muqam said.

It means that Imran Khan-led party has overcome all other issues excluding this one, he said.

Talking to media persons at District Returning Officer (DRO)’s office soon after submitting reply to the notice issued by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to him for violating the code of conduct in the by-polls for PK-8 Peshawar-VIII, he said that opposition parties-especially the PTI’s agenda is something else not accountably.

The opposition parties that are making too much hue and cry on Panama leaks are certain that they would not get a chance even after 2018, if the PML-N government’s journey of progress and prosperity continued under the leadership of Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif, Muqam said.

The PML-N government would continue launching more mega development projects across the country which according to him would usher in an era of progress and development.

“I am confident enough that my party will win again, because, people want uplift and are against the politics of sit-ins and protests,” he added.

Advisor to the PM said that KP government’s justice system and merit was exposed to all after the allegations and corruption charges levelled by the MD of the Bank of Khyber against the sitting Finance Minister, which were investigated by an inquiry committee headed by a provincial minister, who had once been sacked on corruption charges by the PTI provincial government.

The PML-N is demanding the KP government to probe into the Bank of Khyber issue by a commission under Chief Justice Peshawar High Court to ascertain corruption in the province, he said.

He alleged that a senior officer of Anti-Corruption Department was recently removed by the provincial government from his office after launching an inquiry against the blue-eyed people of Imran Khan.

Prior to last general polls, Imran Khan-led party had pledged to change future of the people of the country, but unfortunately nothing has so far been done by the provincial government except launching protests and staging useless sit-ins.

On this occasion, Amir Muqam asked the ECP to deploy Army to ensure peaceful by-election being held in PK-8 Peshawar on May 12.

He said that his party would retain the seat which has fallen vacant after the sad demise of N-League lawmaker Arbab Akbar Hayat.
