Chief Minister KP Pervaiz Khattak has said no one is more Pakistani than the Pakhtuns and he will not tolerate any discrimination to them.
Speaking to a gathering by the Pakhtoon Welfare Organisation here on Tuesday, Mr Khattak said Pakhtuns were Pakistani and considered Punjabis, Baloch and Sindhis their brothers.
He criticised the Punjab government’s decision to register Pakhtuns, saying that the Pakhtuns would not accept any discrimination and would get themselves registered when Punjabis, Sindhis and Baloch were also registered.
“Is Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif is more Pakistani than us?” he asked.
“We should not be pushed against the wall, or we become rebels,” he warned.
Stating that the PML-N government was penalising Pakhtuns just because they were the members/supporters of the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf, he asserted that he would himself write to the interior ministry about the discrimination being meted out to the Pakhtuns in Punjab.
