Sardar Mehtab Ahmed Khan.... As I witnessed him
There are a dignified political tradition of politics in Circle Bakote. From Hazrat Pir Atiqullah Bakoti (1947-68) to Sardar Mehtab Ahmed Khan (1985 to present time) a chain of events came in to being which introduced a social, political, intellectual and leadership adulthood in people of Circle Bakote. We have recognized that Sardar Mehtab Ahmed Khan is a national political icon and first chapter of POLITICAL HISTORY OF CIRCLE BAKOTE. Why......? Because he won the CHIEF MINISTERSHIP of NWFP (KPK now) and conrested for PRIMIERSHIP of Islamic Republic of Pakistan in first time of 5,000 years of Kosar of Circle Bakote. It is not necessary to agree witth his political views as Mahtabism Doctriene of more than three decades leadership without any break but it is reality that he is faithful fellow of his bosses, voters and party workers as a son of soil.How much he delivered to his motherland, it will be decided by next generation history writers. This article is based on Wikipedia article and his imagines collected from his lovers. It is a honor for me that me and my oldest and faithful journalist comrade Tariq Nawaz Abbasi interviewed him in 1986 first time and published in Weekly Musalman Islamabad and Weekly Hill Post Karachi. We continuously interacted with him and write about his merits and demerits as a leader since three decades. Me and my loved friend Isteaq Abbasi (Exective Editor of Weekly Hill Star Islamabad interviewed him in 2011 in detaile and published it in Daily Azkar Islamabad. I also termed his long political career as MAHTABISM.

For further details please study Weekly Hill Post Abbottabad, that not survived after Sardar Mehtab went behind the bars. This weekly was his spoksman and it is true that Sardar Mehtab never won the highest post of leader ship in NWFP if mentioned weekly would not help him in promoting him politically in Circle Bakote and in the whole province. 'he said in his first speech as CM in assembly and notified that the Word <Abbasi> not added with his name. He always had been wrote in news and official document as Sardar Mehtab Ahmed Khan'.

The assets and tax returns

 declared

 by National Assembly candidates from NA-17 

By Sardar Abrar Rashid Saturday, April 27, 2013 

The assets and tax returns declared by National Assembly candidates from NA-17 (Abbottabad) Sardar Mahtab Ahmad Khan and Dr Azhar Jadoon in their nomination papers do not match their wealth and in some instances these details are laughable. 
The nomination papers and details of assets are available with The News. Dr Azhar Jadoon, candidate of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), declared in his nomination papers that he or his spouse and dependents owned the Hira General Hospital, Link Road Abbottabad and Professional Education and Promotion Society only. It said he opened an account with a private bank specifically for the purpose of election expenses and deposited Rs1.5 million in it. 
In column 12 of the nomination paper Dr Azhar Jadoon stated that he received Rs104,000 as salary from a private medical college in tax year 2010 against which he paid Rs24,000 as income tax. He added that he drew Rs129,000 each as salary in 2011 and 2012 and paid Rs36,000 as income tax each year. 
Dr Azhar Jadoon showed no landholding or agricultural income during above stated three years i.e. 2010-2012. He stated on oath that he paid Rs 27,000 for the party ticket. There is increase of Rs414,000 shown in his income against the previous corresponding year ending on June 30, 2012. 
According to the nomination papers, Dr Azhar Jadoon owned a 27 marla house valued at Rs15000,000, land measuring 53 kanal and three marla worth Rs200,000, another land of five kanal and four marla worth Rs 500,000, 18 marla land worth Rs1.2 million, one kanal land priced at Rs2.1 million, and another piece of one kanal land worth Rs400,000. Besides, the value of land owned by him measuring 700 kanal was stated as ‘not known’. 
Dr Azhar also stated that he owned a Land Cruiser model 1987/1988 worth Rs800,000 and Liana 2006 model car priced Rs650,000. He also possessed 20 tola gold. 
The nomination papers of Sardar Mahtab Ahmad Khan, candidate of PML-N from NA-17 also depict an interesting picture. The former chief minister (March 1997 to October 1999) declared that he, his spouse or dependents did not own any company except Malkot Poultry Breeders, Sihala Islamabad. He reported that he opened a bank account specifically for election expenditure with Rs 100,000 deposit. Through his shares and salary from Malkot Poultry Breeders, he said he earned Rs. 692,244 in 2010, Rs 884,736 in 2011, Rs 930,564 in 2012 and paid Rs36,271, Rs58,727 and Rs 65,113, respectively, in these three years as income tax. 
Sardar Mahtab said he paid agricultural tax on his Boi Rankot agricultural land amounting to Rs100,000 in 2010, Rs125,100 in 2011 and Rs 165,000 in 2012. 
Sardar Mahtab declared his total assets Rs16, 214,263 at the end of the previous fiscal year with an increase of Rs596,737 against the assets of Rs15, 617,526 during the corresponding year that ended on June 30, 2011. 
He said he owned plot pf land worth Rs1,335,000 in Jammu and Kashmir Housing Society Islamabad. He also owned a house and forested land in Abbottabad valued at Rs4,770,000 and agricultural land at Boi Rankot worth Rs1,655,977. He also held investment of Rs1,021,398 in Malkot Poultry Breeders, Sihala, Islamabad. According to the declaration column of assets and liabilities, Sardar Mahtab Khan owned a Toyota Prado (2006 model) priced Rs1,300,000 and ornaments worth Rs500,000. 
Sardar Mahtab reported having Rs5, 179,388 cash deposited in a private bank in Islamabad. He had personal valuables and furniture worth Rs750,000 and arms valued at Rs5,500. Many political observers and the common people don’t agree with the assets declaration of almost all the candidates, including Sardar Mahtab and Dr Azhar Jadoon. According to the law, anyone having any proof can challenge these assets at the Election Commission of Pakistan even after the elections and get the successful candidates who have under oath made wrong declaration of assets disqualified. <Read More>
