PESHAWAR: Awami National Party central general secretary Mian Iftikhar Hussain has said that people of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa would reject the policies of the ‘selected’ and incompetent government by voting against the candidates of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf in the upcoming local body elections.

Addressing a public meeting in Nowshera on Sunday, he said that three years performance of the ruling PTI in the centre had fully exposed its incompetence and inefficiency.

He said that ‘selected’ prime minister and his ‘selectors’ were equally responsible for the current political and economic crises in the country.

He said that masses had been suffering due to the ill-planned policies of the ruling PTI and people would reject it in the local government elections.

Mr Hussain alleged that Imran Khan had deceived the people in the name of ‘change’. He termed the present set-up in the centre the most corrupt government in the history of the country.

Highlighting achievements of ANP during its five years tenure, he recalled that nine universities were established and hundreds of new schools and colleges were opened in the province.

He said that the KP government had planned to privatise educational institutions especially colleges that would deprive the youth of higher education.
