PTI, PML-N join hand to fight polio, other diseases in KP, FATA

PESHAWAR: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, which have been at loggerheads all the time, have joined hands to fight out the crippling polio and other nine childhood diseases in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA).

The rare unanimity was demonstrated at the meeting of Provincial Apex Committee held here, which was attended among others by Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Pervez Khattak,  Governor Mehtab Ahmed Abbasi, Corps Commander Peshawar and other senior leaders of PTI and PML-N.


The meeting decided that the two parties would not resort to politics anymore on health issues rather they would jointly struggle to improve health conditions of the people in KP and FATA.

They also decided to constitute a front, “Sihat Ka Ittehad” to wage war against nine childhood diseases including polio.

It is to be mentioned here that in recent past the two parties have been at daggers drawn amid the PTI anti-government movement.
