Ahsan Iqbal asked Imran Khan as to what steps he his government in KP had taken for education of the poor.

He said Imran Khan was giving an impression as if everyone except for him was corrupt. “Imran Khan, who has been crying foul play in the elections, should first of all stop rigging in his own party,” he added.
