Defence Minister Pervaiz Khattak clarifies his remarks against the PM Khan government

Minister for Defence Pervez Khattak issued a clarification on Sunday saying he was "indebted" to Prime Minister Imran Khan, a day after his speech in which he claimed that Imran Khan's "government could not function even for a day if I wanted it [not to]".

In the video of his speech to a gathering in his native town of Manki Sharif in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa's Nowshera district, a recording of which is available with *Dawn.com*, Khattak can be heard saying: "I can take whoever I want to the heights [of success] and make zero whoever I want and this is a result of my hard work."

During the speech he made on Saturday, the minister also said that he was "competing against the entire country", going on to add, "if I do [mischief], Imran Khan's government would not function even for one day but I am indebted to him".
