Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Pervez Khattak has lashed at his political opponents adding that they kept on hiding during their own rule, did a record corruption and become rich but made the people poor. ANP, MMA, PPP and PMLN had left behind a legacy of loot and plunder in all their rules. Imran Khan challenged and facilitated a change in the governance that eliminated the politics of corruption and deceit, he added.

He was addressing a public gathering at Tanda Koi during his day long visit to district Swabi.

Talking about the upward trend of joining PTI by the workers of the other political party, he attributed it to the pro people policies of the provincial government. He said that PTI would give a defeat to all the political opponents. He said ANP ruled this province for three terms but each term brought along a new shape of devastation for the Pakhtoons. ANP used the name of Pakhtoon for the self gain and when reached to power did enmity with Pakhtoons. There third term was the worst when the province had the devastation of terrorism. He came hard on the PPP and MMA saying the former had a track record of corruption and the later used Shriah and left the people in the extreme sense of deprivation, he added.

Maulana Fazalur Rehman went vociferous against the welfare of Khutaba. He challenged Mulana Fazalur Rehman to tell anything he did good to Islam during his rule in the province.

Chief Minister said that this province used to be an unfeasible federating unit on multiple factors that included being at distance from the sea, non availability of raw material, lacking technically skilled people, in appropriate law and order situation and the lack of interest by industrialists and investors but now the situation changed considerably, the law and order situation improved and the investors were contacting his government for industrialization and making investment. His government made this province the most suitable destination for investment and industrialization, he added. He challenged the political leaderships adding that they could have done it during their rule and could have made this province stand on its own feet but unfortunately they could not see beyond their nose and did nothing for the people. He called upon the people to rise to the occasion and should not exercise their right of vote in favor of corrupt politicians. Imran Khan has emerged the undisputed leader who gave a vision to invest in human development, he added.

Pervez Khattak reminded his government reforms adding that his government focused on education, health, Police and reformed these sectors. It was unfortunate that institutions were politicized in the past but now we have a vision to make education the foundation of our development which could bridge the gap between rich and poor.
