MPA accused of taking commissions from contractors.
SHANGLA -- Federal parliamentary secretary and PML-N MNA Ibadullah Khan has accused the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf MPA from Peshawar of taking commission from contractors.
He was addressing a public meeting after inaugurating a link road at Dehrai Pir Khana here on Sunday.
MPA Mohammad Rashad Khan also addressed at the meeting.
The PML-N leader alleged that PTI MPA elected from PK-87, Peshawar, was taking 15 per cent commission from contractors.
'On one hand PTI chief Imran Khan is chanting slogans against corruption, while on the other his party MPAs are involved in corruption and irregularities,' he alleged.
Mr Ibadullah opined that Imran Khan wanted to paralyse the country, while Nawaz Sharif had been struggling to make Pakistan economically strong.
He said that in Lodhran by-election the people had proved that they did not like false slogans, and 'Facebook politics' of PTI.
The lawmaker alleged that PTI-led government had failed the people of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa as it only made 'false commitments' with them.
MPA Rashad also criticised the provincial government for not fulfilling its commitments made with the Shangla people.
He said in upcoming general election the people would vote for PML-N.
The lawmakers inaugurated a four-kilometre link road at Dehrai, beside the MNA announced three more roads in Pir Khana union council.
On the occasion, hundreds of political activists from PTI, QWP, PPP and ANP announced joining in the PML-N.
Several calls were made to take version of PTI MPA Shaukat Yousafzai about the allegations leveled against him by the PML-N lawmaker, but his phone remained switched off.
However, PTI Shangla spokesman Abdul Tawab rejected the allegations and said PML-N leaders were scared of the PTI lawmaker's popularity.
