CHARSADDA: Awami National Party provincial president and candidate for NA- 24, Charsadda, Aimal Wali Khan has alleged that the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf is using government resources in the by-elections in violation of the Election Commission of Pakistan’s code of conduct.

He demanded the ECP to take immediate action against the violators.

Addressing a joining ceremony at Chindro Dag area of Charsadda union council here on Tuesday, Aimal Wali alleged that PDA employees were used to remove the ANP flags and posters from power poles and install PTI flags.
