KP government empowered police, says Imran Khan

KOHAT: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan said on Wednesday that his party’s provincial government empowered police department.

“We didn’t let any political interference in the police department,” he said. “We just chose the best possible Inspector General to lead it.”

Khan said that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz chief asked in his recent address in Abbottabad that 'where is new KP', "I want him to look at the KP Police, he will see the new KP," he said.

"Nawaz Sharif is addressing rallies in KP without bulletproof glasses, he should know this is new KP," Khan added.

The PTI chief said that he is proud of the performance of police department particularly in Mashal Khan and Dera Ismail Khan cases.

Khan said that the opposition parties created drama on DI Khan case for their political motives, the PTI leader added that he immediately called the IG on the case.

"Today the KP police do not follow anyone's instructions, it works by the book. It doesn't take dictation from any Raiwand" he said.

Responding to a question, he said that the lawmakers who voted to allow PML-N leader to remain party leader despite disqualification should 'drown with shame'.

"Who makes a person involved in looting national exchequer their party leader," he said.
