Will go to SC to safeguard KPK rights: Imran Khan

PESHAWAR: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Supremo Imran Khan on Tuesday announced that he would approach the Supreme Court (SC) against the Federal government to protect the rights of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.

Talking to newsmen here, the cricketer-turned politician accused the Federal government of not cooperating on the issue of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) and of making efforts to fail KPK government.

Mr. Khan further said the issue of IDPs is not just confined to KPK province, arguing that majority of the IDPs comprise people from Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA).

PTI chief also announced to induct 400 men from the IDPs in KPK provincial police.

“Khyber Pakhtunkhwa is not provided electricity and water … I have decided to go to the Suprem Court for the rights of the province.”

He said whatever he has done in his tenure had been witnessed by everyone. “The Awami National Party (ANP) should keep its performance in view before accusing PTI government of corruption,” he added.
