ISLAMABAD – Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Pervez Khattak has said that justice is not expected from the federal government in respect of rigging in 2013 general election until Nawaz Sharif is prime minister of the country.
He said that justice was only possible when Nawaz Sharif resigns as the prime minister. He said that everything would be rectified, poor would be respected and supremacy of law, merit and justice would be ensured when Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan came at the helm of the affairs.

On this occasion, Member of National Assembly Dr Imran Khattak, former provincial lawmaker Liaquat Khattak and other political elite also expressed views.
The chief minister said that Imran Khan was in constant contact with him and his ministers round-the-clock to take drastic steps to make Khyber Pakhtunkhwa a model province. He said the era of corruption and malpractices was over. Now, the police stations and patwar circle were not auctioned by the rulers while all basic facilities of health and hygiene were made available to the people, he said.
The chief minister said that his government has stopped political interference in police and tightened the noose around the corrupt people specially the black sheep in officialdom. Over 250 patwaris were either jailed or sent home on proving guilty in malpractices, he said.
