PESHAWAR: The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Fata chapter has threatened to stage protest sit-in outside the Parliament if the government didn’t dismiss the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa governor by November 30. Speaking at a news conference on Monday, PML-N Fata President Faqir Muhammad Afridi alleged that Governor Sardar Mahtab Ahmad Khan had caused damage to the party’s image in the tribal areas. PML-N Fata General Secretary Dilawar Mehsud, Secretary Information Naushad Khan, and representatives from all tribal agencies were present at the conference. Faqir Khan Afridi recalled that workers had rejoiced at the appointment of the governor belonging to the PML-N as they expected him to address their problems on priority basis. He said though the governor launched some development projects, yet he ignored the PML-N activists. He said they had conveyed their reservations about the governor to the party’s Fata coordinator and Prime Minister’s Special Assistant Ameer Muqam. The PML-N leader said they wanted to strengthen the party in Fata. “We have no option, but to launch protest against the governor if he is not removed,” he said.
