Islamabad: Responding to the criticism of Federal Defecne Minister Pervez Khattak, Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan said, “If you are not satisfied with me, then I will give the government to someone else.”

According to the reports, a PTI parliamentary party’s meeting was held under the chair of the prime minister. During the meeting, Pervez Khattak criticized the premier.

“We have made you the prime minister but there is a ban on gas in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. We produce gas and electricity but also facing troubles. If you keep your attitude same then we will not be able to vote for you,” the defence minister said. 

Replying to the minister’s bitter words, the prime minister said, if you are not satisfied with me, I will give the government to someone else.”

According to the sources, Pervez Khattak left the ruling PTI parliamentary party’s meeting held in Islamabad in fury following an ‘altercation’ with Federal Minister for Energy Hammad Azhar on the severe gas crisis in the country.

“We, the people of KP got you elected as the country’s prime minister. But it is sad that there is an extreme gas shortage in the province. KP has the largest gas reservoirs. We also produce electricity. And still, we are deprived of these resources,” he reportedly said to the prime minister in anguish.

“And if the same situation persists, people of the province will not vote for you,” he told PM Imran.

Following tone of his minister, the premier stood to leave the room, saying, “If you are not satisfied with my ‘governance’, I appoint somebody else as my successor.”

He said if his own members continued to blackmail him in this way he would have no other option but to invite the opposition to form the government. He said he does not own any businesses or factories and was daily in contact with the IMF to reduce the taxes.
