Khattak unfazed by Gandapur’s threats, says he will testify ‘honestly’ if called

Gandapur had warned him against testifying against Imran Khan

Former Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Pervez Khattak has rejected threats from Ali Amin Gandapur, saying he will testify truthfully in the 190 million pounds reference case against former Prime Minister Imran Khan.

Speaking informally in Nowshera, Khattak said, “Whether it’s Imran Khan or anyone else, if I’m called to testify, I will speak the truth. I will tell everything I saw and the events that unfolded before me.”

He further stated, “Ali Amin Gandapur and I know each other very well. I have never lied and I will not lie. Some people cannot tolerate the truth.”

Addressing Gandapur’s threats, Khattak said, “Ali Amin Gandapur keeps making threats. He was also part of the cabinet and should also be called to testify.”

Khattak also asserted his independence, adding that he fears no one but Allah.

“I have received notices from NAB and I will face them according to the law. Khyber Pakhtunkhwa is my province and no one can stop me.”

He further emphasized that he owes no favors to anyone, stating, “I formed the government in 2013 through my own hard work, not through any favors. I was not made Chief Minister by anyone’s grace.”

It is worth noting that Ali Amin Gandapur had threatened Khattak the previous day, stating that he would not be allowed to stay in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa if he testified against Imran Khan.

On July 5, the Accountability Court in Islamabad summoned former Defense Minister Pervez Khattak, his former Principal Secretary Azam Khan, and Zubeida Jalal in the 190 million pounds reference case against former Prime Minister Imran Khan.

It is important to note that on July 17th, 2023, former PTI leader Pervez Khattak established the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Parliamentarians.
