Will block Nato supply line after consulting politicians: Pervez Khattak
Sunday Nov 03, 2013
MANSEHRA: Chief Minister, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Pervez Khattak Sunday announced that the NATO supply routes will be blocked after holding consultations with the political parties, Geo News reported.
“The NATO supply line will not be restored until the drone strikes are put to an end,” Khattak reiterated his party’s firm stance on the issue of the unilateral US drone strikes in Pakistani territory while addressing a public meeting in Mansehra.
Commenting on the local bodies’ polls, the KP CM labeled the LB system planned to be introduced in Sindh, Balochistan and Punjab as a sham.
“The local bodies set up for Khyber Pakhtunkhwa will allow its people and public representatives such empowerment which has no precedence in the history,” he pledged, adding, in such a system the bureaucracy will function under LB representatives instead of ministers.
He noted that 70 percent population of KP was forced to drink poison-like water and promised to address this issue at the earliest.
