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.

He said that resources of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa were being used to make the election campaign and rallies of the ruling party successful. He asked the people to get united to end ‘polluted’ politics of PTI.

On this occasion, Mian Asghar Shah and his relatives and friends joined ANP.

Meanwhile, former provincial minister MPA Sultan Mohammad Khan is likely to join ANP. According to sources, a delegation of ANP led by its provincial president Aimal Wali will visit Sultan Mohammad Khan’s residence to formally invite him to the ANP fold. They said the former minister had decided to part ways with PTI.
