ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan has written a letter to the caretaker’s prime minister and demanded the replacement of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa governor.
In the written letter send to Prime Minister Justice (retd) Nasirul Mulk, Imran said that the role of KP Governor Iqbal Zafar Jhagra was questionable on different levels and will affect the coming general election.
The PTI chief has pointed out that Jhagra continued to hold financial administrative powers over the now defunct Federally Administered Tribal Areas. Imran added that Jhagra also continued to intervene in the political affairs of the region especially by controlling the financial strings and also played a partisan role in the politics of entire KP.
Secondly, Imran has stated that the KP governor was among the bureaucrats appointed by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, all of whom were covertly seeking to influence the outcome of General Elections 2018.
Moreover, Imran added, the bureaucrats appointed by PML-N and Pakistan Peoples Party in Punjab and Sindh respectively were making sure there was space left in the field for any other political party.
The PTI chief also stated that the caretaker governments of respective provinces were moving at an extremely slow pace to rectify the situation.
Therefore, he said, direct and immediate action should be taken to replace Jhagra and remove other anomalies that would hinder the process of free and fair elections.
