Gandapur warns officials to take corrective measures

PESHAWAR: Ali Amin Gandapur, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) nominee for the slot of chief minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) on Monday warned the government officials to adopt correct measures or be prepared for punishment.

Gandapur’s comments came in light of the poloce crackdown against his party across the country, especially in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) province, with several PTI workers and supporters being apprehended by law enforcement agencies.

“I warn all those who are acting like ‘more loyal than the king’ to take corrective measures or be ready for punishment,” said Gandapur who has been named for coveted slot of Chief Minister.

“Fake FIRs were lodged against us all over the country,” the politician said while speaking with journalists in Peshawar and hinting at the active role of police and bureaucracy in the crackdown against his party.

The PTI leader, who won PK-113 and NA-44 from his hometown Dera Ismail Khan in the recently held general elections, said that those involved in lawlessness must be punished if traditions are to be changed.

Commenting on the party’s possible alliance to form governments, Gandapur said that PTI’s legal team and committee are working towards it. He added that PTI won’t necessarily join hands with a major party.

However, he maintained, that the party would accept any decision made by founder Imran Khan.

On forming a government in KP, Gandapur said that the names of ministers for the cabinet have been shortlisted, but the decision for that, too, will made by Khan.

“Affiliation with a political party will only be looked into as per the election rules,” he said, disregarding the party’s collaboration with members of PTI-Parliamentarians who strayed away from the party during its difficult times.

“There is no place for those who ran away from suffering. We found out who has coped under the tough conditions,” he added.
