ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Pervaiz Rashid has asked Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan to concentrate on improving the situation in his party-led Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) province instead of criticising others and taking out rallies.

Talking to media persons here on Saturday, the minister said that PTI chief's suggestions to the federal and other provincial governments were of no use till he implemented the same in KP to set an example for others.

He said that there is wide difference between vows and deeds and one should look into his own character and role before issuing any disparaging statements.

Pervaiz alleged that the PTI government has failed in all aspects and it was raising a hue and cry over issues which are not related to KP to veil its failure in fulfilling the aspirations of the people of the province.

He said that Imran, who claims to be a well-wisher of the nation, has not yet succeeded in bringing about a single change in the province and was using different tactics to divert the masses' attention from real issues which are directly related to the general public.

The minister said that the masses have enough awareness to understand the realities and one can't deceive them by verbal pledges instead of taking on the ground steps for facilitating them and reducing the problems faced by people. —INP

Online adds: Talking to this news agency, Pervaiz Rashid said that Imran Khan does not feel comfortable until and unless he criticises the government.

The minister said that everyone knows about progress in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, that is ruled by a PTI-led government.

He suggested Imran to focus on the polio drive in KP and maintain the law and order situation there.

"The country's foreign policy is in the right direction and the government is fully attentive to steer the country out of problems," he added.

He said that the granting of GSP plus status to Pakistan by the European Union and resolution passed by the UN General Assembly against drone attacks were ample proof of Pakistan's diplomatic achievements.

"The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz is trying hard to restore the soft image of the country," he said. He said the prime minister was fulfilling his promise through the loan scheme that he had made during the election campaign.

"The PML-N believes on practical results not on political gimmicks," he added.

He said that the masses were fed up with the 'Dharna' (sit-in) style of politics.
