Addressing a public meeting at Mardan today, PML-N leaders including Pervaiz Rasheed, Ahsan Iqbal, Amir Muqam and others bitterly criticised PTI. Pervaiz Rashid said on the occasion that PML-N believed in the power of ballot, not baton.

He added that he could bet Imran Khan won’t be seen on October 30. He said that PML-N still has the power to dislodge PTI government in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) and that the provincial government was on PML-N’s mercy. “If we wish to, we can throw PTI government today and prove our numerical strength”, Rasheed said.

Federal Minister for Planning and Development Chaudhry Ashan Iqbal said on the occasion that the terrorism was at its peak in Pakistan in 2012 but there is peace here today and the terrorists were on the run. He said that China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) was a national project and everyone will benefit from it. He added that the federal government made over 100 projects for KP during the last one year.

PML-N leader Amir Muqam also addressed on the occasion and bitterly criticised PTI’s provincial government.
