PESHAWAR - Accepting the decision of Parliamentary Board, ANP ex-MPA Aurngzeb Khan on Monday expressed his full confidence in the party leadership.

He vowed to work for the development of party despite the fact that he was not allotted the ticket for contesting election on PK-1 seat. Speaking at a news conference here at the Peshawar Press Club, he said that the party leadership had awarded ticket in 2008 to Alamzeb Khan, his elder brother, who was later killed in a bomb blast.

“My brother contested the 2008 elections as an ANP candidate and later in the bye-election, the party leadership reposed confidence in me by awarding the ticket.

He claimed that he had served the masses during the five years of ANP’s government in the province, and vowed to continue his struggle for the welfare of people.

He said that leaders of the other political parties offered him ticket but he refused and would abide by the Parliamentary Board’s decision.

He maintained that his family was loyal to ANP and had rendered numerous sacrifices for the party in the past and would never prefer personal interest over the party interest in the future. The ticket, he said had no meaning for him and would support the ANP candidates in the forthcoming elections.
