PESHAWAR- The Khyber Pakhtonkhwa (KP) government has ordered data collection of 22 federal and provincial employees of Peshawar who hold dual nationalities .
Following government action against dual nationals in other provinces, such persons are also likely to face the music in KP as well. According to government officials , it was discovered that some high-ups in provincial government departments were holders of dual nationalities .
The government has now issued directives for collection of data of all such officials to determine their positions in government departments. The erstwhile PPP government had been under-fire for keeping dual nationals on key government posts in its tenure. The Supreme Court had disqualified various lawmakers from parliamentary memberships after they were discovered holding dual nationalities . Most of them were later restored after filing appeals and clarifying their positions.
