Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Chief Minister Mahmood Khan on Saturday announced that the provincial assembly will be dissolved later in the day. Speaking at an event in Peshawar, the prime minister said that when the summary of the dissolution of the KP assembly will be sent to Governor Haji Ghulam Ali, its copies will also be shared with journalists. However, no update was shared with the media till the filing of this report. “We will start again from scratch,” he added. Mahmoud said that people belonging to the middle class are worried about inflation.
The federal government was still sitting on the funds of the KP government, he added. “The center is not releasing the salaries of government employees in Federally Administered Tribal Areas,” the CM said, adding that the KP government was paying them from provincial exchequers. On Friday, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) provincial president Pervez Khattak said that the KP legislation will also be dissolved after the dissolution of the Punjab Assembly. He asked the PTI workers to start preparing for the next elections. Khattak said the government and its allies were avoiding elections as they could not face the masses who were facing a host of problems due to their flawed economic policies. He said that rising inflation had made life difficult for common people.
He said friendly countries were also reluctant to provide financial assistance to Pakistan at this critical juncture. He said that Pakistan had become isolated in the incoherence of nations. Khattak said holding elections was the only solution to the problems facing the country.
