Strikes in KP
Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Arbab Khizer Hayat on Sunday asked the PTI-led government to quit immediately, as a sense of uncertainly prevails among people just because of government’s wrong and directionless polices.
He said that government employees, doctors, students and patwaris are on strikes across the province. However, despite being well aware of the situation, the provincial government has become a silent spectator, which is regrettable.
“The wrong polices of the PTI has developed a sense uncertainty in general public. And, it is feared that opposition parties and civil societies may call for joint strikes against the provincial government, if the situation remains the same,” he warned.
The strikes, he predicted may continue until forcing the PTI provincial government to quit. The present government, he said, had so far been unable to deliver; he said this while talking to various delegations of his party workers met him at his residence.
Provincial exchequer bears million of losses per day and it is just because of a constant strike launched by Patwaris since long. Instead of tacking the situation, the government had not bothered yet to meet the demands of Patwaris, he alleged.
The level of seriousness of the PTI provincial government is reflected in a way, it transferred the KP Chief Secretary and IGP recently, he said adding that this inappropriate way of treating high government officials, who had served the province in very hard times, was unacceptable.
Unfortunately, those who presently govern the province had ever preferred their own interests instead of the interest of people of the province who had voted them wholeheartedly in July 2018 polls, Arbab Khizer Hayat remarked.
He said that he would soon expose huge corruption in the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project. A major mega project in the KP had been marred by corruption. The BRT project was not going to complete in near future as it was lacking funds, due to which commuters were facing hardships while traveling in Peshawar.
