PESHAWAR: Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) Chief Minister Ali Amin Gandapur announced that if Imran Khan initiates a hunger strike, similar protests will erupt across Pakistan and globally.

Addressing the concerns of the PTI founder, he said, “His reservations are completely valid. If he goes on a hunger strike, the protest will spread throughout Pakistan and around the world. We adhere to the law and respect it, and we can engage in peaceful protests to claim our rights.”

Speaking to the media after an appearance at the Anti-Terrorism Court in Islamabad on Monday, he mentioned discussions with an American delegation regarding the cypher issue.

Gandapur also highlighted that for the first time under his leadership, the K-P government has not taken any loans and has instead presented a surplus budget of Rs100 billion.

He further shared that the Health Card scheme is being reintroduced in the province, aligning with the vision of the PTI founder for K-P to be self-sufficient. “In just 100 days, we have undertaken numerous public service initiatives,” he added.

The CM also stated that by 2028, K-P will generate 800 megawatts of electricity and employ 100,000 young people. However, he pointed out that demands for appointing officers in the province have not been met.
