PESHAWAR: Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister-designate Pervez Khattak has said the incoming government of Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf (PTI) will bring result-oriented changes in education, health, power and revenue sectors to eliminate the difference between rich and poor.

He was presiding over a high-level meeting of the education, health, power and finance departments at the Civil Secretariat on Tuesday.

Senior Minister designate and Naib Amir of Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) Sirajul Haq, Provincial Parliamentary Leader of Qaumi Watan Party Sikandar Sherpao, Central Leaders and Economic Advisers of PTI Asad Umar, Jehangir Tareen, Azam Swati and Ishaq Khakwani, Speaker designate KP Assembly Asad Qaisar and other officials attended the meeting.
