NOWSHERA, Nov 27: Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Minister for Information Mian Iftikhar Hussain has said that terrorists are planning to get elected their candidates in the forthcoming general elections in the country to impose their agenda on the people.

Addressing a public meeting here on Tuesday, he said that terrorists wanted to occupy seats in the parliament by backing some candidates in the next general elections.

The minister said that in the past terrorists used to term casting of votes un-Islamic but then they realised that they couldn’t impose their agenda on people without the power of ballot.

Therefore, they were campaigning in their areas of influence to get vote for the candidates backed by them, he said.

Mr Hussain said that the terrorists were devising plans to send their candidates to the parliament to impose their will on the people.

It would prove disastrous for the country and the nation, he added.

ANP district president Ahrar Khattak and Daud Khattak also addressed the public meeting.

On this occasion, a number of notables including Haji Nazar Mohammad Khan, Misal Khan, Nek Mohammad Khan and Shaukat Khan joined Awami National Party along with their families and supporters.

The minister said that two new tubewells would be built in Jabatar and Jaba Khushk areas. He said that the existing tubewells in the areas would be also repaired.

He said that the people affected by construction of dam in the area would be rehabilitated.
