LAHORE: Expressing his annoyance and displeasure with KP Chief Minister Pervaiz Khattak, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan on Sunday said the KP government had disappointed him, adding that the CM should have visited the residence of martyred student Aitzaz Hasan who sacrificed his life to save many students.

Talking to the media after visiting the residence of PTI Lahore member Neelam Ashraf whose son was gunned down a day ago, Imran said late Aitzaz is a national hero who sacrificed his life by blocking the suicide bomber who was on his way to target a school in Hangu.

Imran said the KP government should have issued statement over the incident and family of the late student and the chief minister should have visited his house. He also announced that his party would take care of Aitzaz's family.

On the death of Neelam Ashraf's son, Imran said that police are declaring the killing a suicide without carrying out post mortem. He also said four office-bearers of the PTI were gunned down in Kasur and it is obvious that crime is on the rise in the Punjab. He also said that political interference in police affairs has increased. To a question about drone attacks, Imran said the KP government would continue to obstruct Nato supply unless the drone strikes come to end.

KP govt team to finally visit Aitzaz's family

Admitting the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government's failure to contact the family of Aitzaz Hassan, Chief Minister Pervez Khattak on Sunday said that a delegation of ministers would visit the bereaved family soon.

Talking to reporters in Manki Sharif, he said that the cabinet members would soon meet the family of Aitzaz to offer condolences. To a question, he termed the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan's criticism as just. "Atizaz Hassan is our hero and the entire nation is thankful to his family over his sacrifice," he said, adding that he would also visit Atizaz's residence very soon.

Condemning the suicide attack on the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Amir Muqam, Pervez Khattak said that a high-level investigation had been ordered. The situation would become clear after the inquiry report, he added.

Expressing concern over lack of progress in the talks with the militants, he said that the war was proving costly for the nation. He said that the federal government should take final decision whether it wanted to resolve the issue peacefully or through the use of force. However, he stressed that the government should opt for peaceful resolution to the dispute and take the provincial government on board.
