QWP parts ways with PTI KPK Govt
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI), Wednesday, parted ways with Qaumi Watan Party (QWP) in the provincial coalition government of Khyber Pukhtunkhwa. A press note issued here said that PTI Chairman Imran Khan, Wednesday, issued a strong advisory to Chief Mninster Pervez Khattak to pull out of the coalition with Qaumi Watan Party (QWP). Imran said the QWP was given two warnings about the corruption of two of their ministers but this party chose to tolerate corruption and instead showed its displeasure at the corruption being pointed out by boycotting the provincial cabinet meetings.
Today two of their ministers were dismissed by the chief minister. He also stated that PTI was elected on a mandate against corruption and there is zero tolerance for any form of corruption. “This should be a clear warning for all our Ministers and MPAs and PTI cannot have as a coalition partner any Party that tolerates corruption,” Imran made clear. “Our JI Ministers have proven exemplary in this regard and we respect them for their commitment towards anti corruption”, Khan added. Earlier, three Khyber Pakhtunkhwa provincial ministers have been sacked over poor performance. According to media reports Yousuf Ayub of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), Bakht Bedar and Abrar Hussain of Qaumi Watan Party had been removed.
