PESHAWAR - Like other parts of the country activist of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Khyber Pakhtunkhwa chapter staged a protest demonstration against the federal government and condemned brutal use of tear gas and rubber bullets against peaceful protesters.
The protesters were led by MNA Hamid-ul-Haq, Irfan Saleem, Amir Sohail, Sohail Khan and others. The protest demonstration was also participated by Majlis Wahdatul Muslimeen and Pakistan Awami Tehreek Khyber Pakhtunkha chapter. The enraged protesters burnt tyres and blocked Shershah Suri Road for all kinds of traffic. The PTI protesters also staged a rally on University Road and chanted slogans in favour of Imran Khan and against Premier Nawaz Sharif.
Addressing on the occasion leaders of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf youth wing said that PML-N government has broken the records of Genghis Khan and Halako Khan and they resorted on firing and teargas against innocent marchers. They said that government has proved that they are production of dictatorship and tyranny.
They added that police targeted innocent woman, children and elders of PTI and PAT which is extreme stage of atrocities. PTI MNAs Hamidul Haq and Murad Saeed said that that those who elected PML-N rulers to power are now feeling a shame for electing them as leadership of Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) is more terrible than dictatorship.
They appealed to PTI workers to take to the streets against the corrupt rulers who have been elected on fake mandate. They also appealed to other political parties to condemn the government which used expired teargas against innocent protestors.
They said that those who came for donation of blood to injured people were also arrested by police while those media persons who were covering the event were also brutally tortured. They mentioned that attack on media persons has proved that government wants to suppress the voice of the people and it is a shameful moment for the rulers who chose the option of violence against unarmed protestors.
PTI ignored KP problems for sake of unconstitutional
Sikandar Hayat Khan Sherpao, parliamentary leader of Quami Watan Party in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa assembly, has said that the PTI government has ignored the problems of the province for the sake of its unconstitutional sit-in in Islamabad.
He was addressing a public meeting here at Akhunabad area on Sunday. On this occasion Ex-Nazim UC Akhunabad Islam-ud-Din along with his family and scores of his supporters joined QWP.
Sherpao regretted that the provincial government had stationed in the federal capital for the last two weeks and left the masses helpless. He continued that practically there is no government in the province which was increasing the sense of deprivation among the people. He deplored that the KP government was misusing the official resources on aimless sit-ins while the vital issues of province had been put on backburner.
Sikandar Sherpao observed that those raising slogan for change had further aggravated the problems of the people. He said that the irresponsible attitude of PTI government had led the province to political instability, financial degradation and social unrest which had further heightened the backwardness of the KP.
The QWP leader said that after having enjoyed the government for the last 14 months now PTI raised hue and cry over rigging just to mislead the people. Many people, he viewed, have died due to hailstorm but chief executive had stayed at Islamabad and left the people in lurch. He laminated that government had not done anything for the IDPs. He said that people were crying hard for basic amenities but the chief minister and his cabinet contrary to the public mandate had been busy in Islamabad.
