Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Mehmood Khan’s attempt to join the PTI forward bloc in the KP Assembly hit a roadblock after being informed he was, in fact, the KP CM.
“I would like to join you and your associates in the forward bloc,” he said Friday morning to forward bloc leader provincial tourism minister Atif Khan. “I wasn’t that much of a fan of [former KP CM Pervez Khattak but this new guy is completely ineffectual.”
“The whole place is upside down and no one seems to be minding the store,” he said to an uncomfortable Atif Khan. “In fact, if we were to go out on the road and ask, I’m sure many people won’t even know who the new CM is. That is how uninspiring and devoid of charisma he is.”
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Imran Khan expressed hope that the PTI’s parliamentary body in the KP Assembly would resolve it’s differences. “I hope Chief Minister…CM…..CM….whatever his name is, can win people over to his side.”
