No intention of govt to abolish 18th amendment: Khattak

ISLAMABAD, Jun 27 (APP):Minister for Defence Pervez Khattak Thursday said that the government had no intention to abolish 18th amendment of the Constitution as it did not have two-third majority in the National Assembly so the opposition should stop spreading rumours on the matter.

Talking to media persons outside the Parliament House along with Adviser to Prime Minister Shehzad Arbab and Chief Balochistan National Party-Mengal (BNP-M) Muhammad Akhtar Mengal, the minister said that the government was not enjoying the majority in the lower house to make amendments in the constitution.

The minister said that BNP-M was ally of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government and its six points would be implemented in true letter and spirit.
Pervez Khattak said that the government would provide Rs nine billion subsidy to the government of Balochistan on electricity and the duration of loadshedding would be three hours.
