MARDAN -- Provincial president Khyber Pakhtunkhwa of Awami National Party Ameer Haider Khan Hoti has asked party activists to get themselves ready for coming local government elections as the time has come for people to get rid of those who have been raising voice for fake change.
Haider Khan Hoti expressed these views here on Tuesday while addressing the ANP workers gathering held at his residence. On the occasion, former provincial vice-president of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz Aman Ullah Khan along with his several other party leaders and workers announced to join the ANP.
Addressing participants of the gathering, Hoti criticized both the Prime Minister of Pakistan Mian Mohammad Nawaz Sharif and Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan for not highlighting rights and issues of Pakhtun nation.
He blamed that service of Pakhtun nation as well as Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province was not on their agenda. He said, on one side, the central ruling party PML-N was considering only Punjab as whole Pakistan while on the other hand, the PTI chief Imran Khan had focused his eyes on getting power in Islamabad.
He claimed that ANP was getting popularity by each passing day and their candidates would clean sweep in the next local government elections.
Hoti said that Pakhtuns were the ultimate sufferer owing to the war for power between PML-N and PTI.
"Awami National Party is the only political force in the country which is capable to not only get rights but also steer Pakhtuns out of ctritical juncture," he added. He said that they would wash out the so-called Tsunami of PTI in the coming local government elections as the incumbent provincial ruling party had failed to resolve issues of people of the province.
"We have come to the field to bring together Pakhtuns from Chitral to Dhera Ismail Khan under the red umbrella for our rights and protection of own soil," he said, adding that without ANP no other party had the ability to do that.
Later, other party leaders including ANP Peshawar president Malik Khalid Naseem , ex-deputy speaker KPK assembly Khushdil Khan, Arbab Tariq, Saqib Ullah Khan and Mardan (chapter) district president Himayat Ullah Mayar advocate also addressed the party workers.
