ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan on Monday announced that an ‘accountability movement’ would be launched in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa from August 7. Utv Pakistan Report
Speaking to reporters in Islamabad outside National Accountability Bureau’s office, he said that development funds for the members of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa assembly have been halted and the funds would only be allotted to local administrators.
“Assembly member’s duty was legislation, development work would only be performed by local representatives and no political interference would be tolerated in this regard”, he added.
Imran said that local administration would be provided with Rs33 billion development funds.
He said that the KP assembly would approve legislation in this regard during its next session.
He warned that strict action would be taken against party discipline violators.
PTi chief also announced a reward for identifying corruption in government institutions.
“Whoever points out corruption in government institutions would be rewarded with 25pc of recovered amount,” he said.
He further said the identifiers name would not be revealed.
According to a report in The News, internal discord and infighting on the heels of recent defeat in Azad Kashmir elections has set Imran Khan-led PTI in a tailspin, raising serious doubts about its ability to mount an effective anti-federal government campaign (on Panama Leaks) in early August.
Feeling heat of the situation, Imran Khan and close aides have set an ambitious target to settle internal party differences and quell infighting before they kick-start a movement against the PML-N led government.
Hectic close-door meetings were held in Bani Gala on Saturday and Sunday to put the party cadres in order, and come up with a strategy to highlight the achievements of its embattled KP government.
For this, they are ready to roll a few heads to send in a strong signal to all concerned.
Party insiders, however, fear that the PTI is not ready for such an ambitious campaign against the PML-N government when its own house is not in order. And that too in a political scenario where the opposition ranks, especially the PPP, is not ready for a street agitation against the federal government owing to its own political compulsions.
