PESHAWAR: Chairman Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI), Imran Khan Wednesday issued a strong advisory to Chief Minister Khyber Pukhtunkwa, Pervez Khattak to pull out of the coalition with Qaumi Watan Party (QWP).
“QWP was given two warnings about the corruption of two of their ministers but this Party chose to tolerate corruption and instead showed its displeasure at the corruption being pointed out by boycotting the provincial cabinet meetings,” observed Imran Khan in a press statement released by Media Cell of PTI.
It merits a mention here that Chief Minister, Pervez Khattak today dismissed two ministers of QWP allegedly on charges of corruption. Dismissed ministers are Batkh Baidar Khan and Ibrar Khan.
In the press statement, Imran stated that PTI was elected on a mandate against corruption and there is zero tolerance for any form of corruption.
“This should be a clear warning for all our ministers and MPAs that PTI cannot have as a coalition partner any party that tolerates corruption,” Imran said.
“Our JI ministers have proven exemplary in this regard and we respect them for their commitment towards anti corruption,” Imran added.
