“Some unavoidable circumstances in my constituency have forced me to take this step,” he shared while adding that he has a lot of responsibilities and wanted to keep up to the expectations of the people of his constituency and reserve his entire attention for them.
In February 2021, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Law Minister Sultan Mohammad Khan tendered resignation from his post, hours after Prime Minister Imran Khan directed KP chief minister to remove him from the post due to his alleged appearance in a video of receiving money during Senate elections 2018.
Minutes after PM Imran passed orders for removal of the provincial law minister, the KP chief executive had asked Law Minister Sultan Khan to step aside and resign to clear his name after the surface of the video.
“As Chief Executive of KP, I’ve asked Law Minister Sultan Khan to step aside & resign, due to his alleged appearance in a video released on social media, to clear his name”
“We will, as per the vision of PM, uphold the highest standards of accountability & transparency in this province,” CM tweeted.
