PESHAWAR: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan Thursday said those MPAs who sold their votes in the Senate election would be expelled from the party.
Talking to the media in Islamabad, Imran said the party was constituting a legal team over the violation of its code of conduct during the recent Senate elections. He said several leaders want to join the PTI, but the party would give tickets on merit. “We have learnt from our experience in last elections,” he said.
He directed party members to work for the unity of the party and that violation of the rules would not be tolerated. He said the nation is giving overwhelming response to party’s membership drive.
It was widely expected that Imran Khan will finally get rid of the MPAs who are not following the party’s code of conduct. Those MPAs who indulged in horse-trading in the Senate election will not get the PTI tickets in the next elections, and the party has already found replacements for them in their respective constituencies. Some of ‘electables’ have defected from other parties and they have good chances of winning the next polls. However, the PTI is also expected to receive set back in some constituencies where it has lost hold.
To a question, the PTI chief said the KP government won’t present the upcoming budget. He said how could the government present yearly budget within 45 days. He said that the PTI would oppose presentation of the federal budget by the federal government.
He said that Fata-KP merger could not be accomplished due to Maulana Fazlur Rehman.
“We brought the chairman Senate from Balochistan to strengthen the federation,” said the PTI chief, adding that the party is striving for Fata to get rights. He said the PTI supporters Fata-KP merger.
