MARDAN: Former chief minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Ameer Haider Khan Hoti has said that Awami National Party (ANP) faced a lot of problems in general election and different people issued threatening letters to party workers.

“Previous general election was different and unique election in Pakistan political history”, he added.
Hoti expressed these views while addressing to a gathering at his residence here on Saturday.

Former CM added that other party’s candidate and leaders were doing their election campaign while ANP candidates and leaders were busy in offering the funeral prayers of their martyred workers.

“We are democratic people and trust on democracy and despite of all these facts we accept the results of the general election”, Ameer Haider Khan added.
“Great injustice was made with ANP in the previous elections,” he mentioned.

ANP leader claimed that people aren’t satisfied from the current rulers and therefore office bearers and workers of ruling parties are joining ANP.

Hoti advised party workers speedup membership campaign and complete it within ten days so that party intra election should be arranged before the Local Bodies election.

On the occasion, Pakistan Muslim League- Nawaz (PML-N) former district deputy general secretary Naeem Anwar announced joining ANP along with scores of his supporters and family members.

Organizing committee, chairman and member of provincial assembly (MPA) Haji Ahmed Khan Bahadur, member organizing committee Rooz Mohammad Khan, former ex MNA Haji Himayatullah Mayar, PML-N former district deputy general secretary and other also addressed the meeting.
