ISLAMABAD (Staff Report) – Federal  Minister for Information Pervez Rasheed has said the Director General Accountability Commission of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa resigned against PTI chief Imran Khan’s strategy of deceiving the people of KPK in the name of accountability.

Talking to newsmen after attending a ceremony linked to Iran’s National Day in Islamabad, he said the Justice (Retd) Wajeeh-ud-Din had parted ways from PTI because Imran Khan was supporting those who had committed rigging in intra party elections.
