Khyber Pakhtunkhwa PML-N president Pir Sabir Shah has said that Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf chairman Imran Khan wants to destabilise the country by blocking the way of progress and development, but the nation would not allow him to do so.

He was addressing his party’s workers convention at Damghar area of Kabal tehsil in Swat on Friday.

Condemning the PTI chief’s anti-government stance, he said that Imran Khan should not block the way of development in the country, but rather appreciate and cooperate with the federal government’s positive policies.

“Imran Khan defamed Pakistan by promoting dance culture in the country,” he said.

The PML-N leader claimed that due to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s vision and policies Pakistan was on the track of development where several motorways were under construction along with other development projects.

“This country needs Nawaz Sharif for our better future. CPEC is the historical project for the country’s development,” he said.

He claimed that PML-N would sweep the 2018 general elections as the country needed Mr Sharif and his team for long-term development. Mr Shah said that India was living in fool’s paradise and it could never subdue Pakistan.

He said that Pakistan was an atomic power and its forces were capable of tackling every challenge.

PML-N MPAs Arbab Wasim and Sobia Khan and its Swat general secretary Umar Farooq and other activists were also present on the occasion.

CLERKS THREATEN PROTEST: Office-bearers of the All Pakistan Clerks Association (APCA) and All Government Employees Coordination Council (AGECC) have threatened to hold protest against the unfavourable attitude of PTI MPA and special assistant to KP chief minister, Dr Amjad Ali.

Speaking at a press conference at Swat Press Club on Friday, Mohammad Aslam Khan, the central president of APCA, said that if Dr Amjad did not stop his revengeful behaviour against the government employees, including clerical staff, they would stage a sit-in in front of the provincial assembly after shutting all the offices.

He claimed that the inquiry report on the construction of government primary school, Chongai, was in favour of the contractor and department, but Dr Amjad transferred sub-engineer Shafiq Shinwari to Karak in the case.

He said that a clerk, Mushtaq Ahmad, was also invited to face a committee at Peshawar where he was harassed
