PESHAWAR: Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Pervez Khattak has said that drone attacks by the United States are a violation of Pakistan's independence and sovereignty, and they would not allow such attacks.

Talking to party workers and media persons at his residence on Sunday, the chief minister said the suspension of supplies by the US through the Torkham border after the protests by the PTI was their victory. He said it was a decision of the PTI and allied parties to block the supplies and a final decision on it would be taken by Imran Khan on his return from India.

He said the provincial government was preparing to hold local government elections in March after consultation with other parties.

He said 30% of the development budget would be placed at the disposal of the local governments so as to enable them to carry out development work in line with the demands of the local people.

He said elections at village council level will be held on non-party basis while tehsil and district level local government elections would be held on party basis.

Chief Minister Khattak claimed that during the tenure of the previous government, Chief Minister's Secretariat had become an auction market where jobs and transfers were "sold". He said the people rejected the ANP government "due to its record corruption and destruction of institutions". The chief minister challenged the opposition to prove any corruption against the provincial ministers and advisers. He vowed to eliminate corruption and commission mafia from the province.

He expressed satisfaction over the law and order situation and pointed out that today Asfandyar Wali, Mian Iftikhar and Amir Haider Hoti are going to their native areas freely, while during their tenure, they were restricted to their homes as hostage. The chief minister said people have voted them to power for change, peace in the region, justice and to end corruption. He said his party would live up to the expectations of the masses.

End.
