ANP asks govt to fulfil promises or face protests

The Awami National Party on Sunday accused Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif of not fulfilling his promises on the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor. Addressing a public gathering at Charsadda, ANP leader Ásfandyar Wali Khan warned the government of protests if it backed out on its promises on CPEC.

He expressed his concerns on the stark contrast between the claims that the provincial Khyber-Pakhtunkwa and the federal government were making on the Army Public School and Bacha Khan University attack.

The ANP leader also called for the merger of the federally administered tribal areas with K-P and demanded a special grant for Fata. He also said a census should be carried out in Fata so the region could be given its due share in the National Finance Commission Award.

He further criticised the K-P government and added that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf had compromised over the provincial government’s rights.

Speaking on the occasion, former K-P chief minister Amir Haidar Khan Hoti said the K-P government had failed, adding that it is running over pension funds. He also blamed the provincial government of corruption.
