Khyber Pakhtunkhwa chief minister(CM) Mahmood Khan on Monday said the KP government has run out of funds due to the non-release of its dues from the federal government.
Addressing a press conference in Islamabad, CM KP claimed the federal government is trying to squeeze the provincial government. Our dues to the center have not been cleared yet and as a result, the province doesn’t have money for salary payments
Warning the federal government, CM KPK Mahmood Khan said in case of non-release of dues, the people of KPK will protest in Islamabad.
He alleged that the incumbent government has scrapped all the steps taken by the PTI government and added that the cut in the budget of the erstwhile FATA is alarming.
The KP CM said the center should take the province into confidence if the economic situation of the country is not good. Earlier, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa minister Shaukat Yousafzai claimed that the federal government is hatching a conspiracy to impose governor’s rule in Punjab and KP provinces.
In order to build pressure on the (PDM) coalition government for early elections, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has decided to launch the ‘Election Karao Mulk Bachao’ campaign across the country from 7th December 2022 onwards.
The development came during a meeting of PTI’s lawmakers and office-bearers hailing from Lahore. Party chairman Imran Khan presided over the meeting at his Zaman Park residence on Monday.
