Those trying to buy Senate votes will return empty-handed, says KP CM

Those trying to buy Senate votes will return empty-handed, says KP CM

NOWSHERA: Chief Minister Pervez Khattak on Saturday said those who were looking for buying votes for the upcoming Senate election would return empty-handed from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

“We have made preparations for the Senate and general election.

We will win the elections through our performance,” the chief minister said while addressing a public gathering after inaugurating the Pashtun Garhi Bridge over Kabul River in Kheshgi.

Pervez Khattak said that he had always served the people whether or not he was in power.

He said the common man had placed trust in the leadership of the PTI that would not let the people down.

In a bid to rally behind his embattled political master, Pervez Khattak dismissed reports that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan used helicopter for political activities.

“Imran Khan has never used helicopter for private visits.

He was accompanied by me and the provincial ministers whenever he came to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in his capacity as PTI chairman to open a project,” he said.

He added that Imran Khan was formally invited to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa to attend a meeting or function.

It may be recalled that National Accountability Bureau Chairman Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal ordered an inquiry against Imran Khan and Chief Minister Pervez Khattak for using official helicopters at cheaper rates.

The chief minister said that they had fulfilled promises made with the people.

“The reforms in education, health and police departments are yielding results and people appreciate them,” he added.

The chief minister said his party believed in serving the people and they would

not bow to any pressure to implement the government policies.
