Prime Minister Imran Khan has decided to give another chance to the three Khyber Pakhtunkhwa ministers who were sacked earlier this week.

This was decided at a meeting between PM Imran Khan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Mahmood Khan on Friday. The premier directed the KP CM to take Atif Khan, Shahram Tarakai and Shakeel Ahmed back into the cabinet, work with them as a team and come up to people’s expectations.

“I don’t want to put pressure on you. I have full confidence in you. I removed the ministers to empower you,” the PM told the CM. The premier said that some elements created misunderstanding among KP ministers. He directed the CM to fix these problems and deliver like a team.
