PESHAWAR - KP Minister for Labour and Parliamentary Affairs, Shaukat Yousafzai has said that the obtaining of the highest number of votes in the recent local bodies’ polls has proved PTI as the largest and popular political party of the province.

He expressed these views while addressing a public meeting at Merah Piyaz and Dandai Lailai, district Shangla on Saturday. PTI district office bearers and other senior leaders were also present on the occasion.
