Amid reports of moves to dislodge Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Mahmood Khan, three ministers were sacked from the provincial cabinet.

Accordingly, the KP Governor denotified them from the cabinet.

Those shown the door were Senior Minister for Sports and Tourism Atif Khan, Health Minister Shahram Tarkai and Minister for Revenue and Estate Shakeel Ahmad.

Confirming the sackings, KP Information Minister Shaukat Yousafzai said that problems emerge if PTI keeps mum on groupings in the party.

It may be mentioned here that action against these ministers followed Chief Minister Mahmood Khan’s meeting with Prime Minister Imran Khan in Islamabad on Saturday.
