ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Member National Assembly Dawar Kundi has refuted party leader Imran Khan’s claim that he has received the resignation of the party members present in the elected houses.
While speaking to Geo News, Kundi said that no member of the PTI has handed over resignation to Imran Khan, adding that Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Pervaiz Khattak and his cabinet has refused to hand over resignation on the party chairman’s demand.
The elected legislator from NA-25 (D.I.Khan-cum-Tank) informed that CM Khattak wants to complete projects including Peshawar Metrobus project, and if these projects are not completed before elections it can adversely affect the party’s electoral campaign.
The disgruntled PTI legislator said that absence of PTI leaders Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Chaudhry Sarwar, Mehmoodur Rasheed in the party’s Central Executive Committee is a clear indication of dissent within the party.
The PTI chief while addressing a press conference after the party’s CEC said that the final decision regarding the resignations will be taken after consultations with senior PTI leaders and the party members has given him the authority to decide on resignations from assemblies.
According to reports, two factions in the party seemed to have emerged — one in favor of resignations from the assembly, and the other strongly opposed to it.
The group opposed to resignations from assemblies and dissolving the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa legislature reasons that PTI would not be able to claim its share in the caretaker government if it takes the extreme measure, sources said.
