Peshawar: Defense Minister Pervez Khattak claimed on Sunday that there are opposition parties across the country because he needs all members of the assembly to only care about and respect him.
In a post on social-networking website, the minister said, “Clearly mentioned in my speech for the locals of my village in Nowshera that I’m sincere and indebted to Imran Khan.”
“We will defeat all the opposition parties ganged up against the candidate we are supporting for the by-election,” he added.
Earlier, Musharraf Katak said that the artificial coalition of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) has rejected the masses due to its negative and personal interests politics, and will soon meet its logical end.
At a public meeting he dealt with in the Nowshera district of Sharif Manki, the defense minister said that the PDM artificial coalition had been formed by rejected political parties to protect them from corruption.
He said that the country is trapped in heavy loans and natural gas. The wrong policies of the PPP and PML-N systems have led to an increase in electricity prices. He said that today’s price increase is due to the wrong policies of the past regime.
He said that under the leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan, the country’s exports have increased, as has industrial production.
He said the government will complete its five-year term and that elections will be held in 2023.
Pervez Khattak said local governments at districts, tehsils and village councils would be setup and draft for amendment in LG Amended Act 2019 would soon be passed from the Assembly.
