Imran cancels party membership of dozens of workers, accuses PM of dishonest politics

Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Saturday cancelled the membership of dozens of party workers for violating party policies, said a statement released by the party.

Party workers from four districts, Mianwali, Attock, Narowal and Faisalabad were dismissed and show cause notices issued to them.

Imran accused the workers of violating party policies in the last stage of the local bodies elections held in Punjab province.

He also accused Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif of bribing political workers and buying their support.

“Nawaz Sharif only wins elections and maintains power by rigging the vote or buying it,” Imran said.

He also said the country will always remember the premier for his dishonest politics.

While talking to Dawn News, senior PTI leader Jahangir Tareen clarified that party members had been expelled for not voting according to party directions in Punjab local body elections.

“Despite clear instructions, these members grouped together and voted for an opposing candidate,” Tareen said.

“We will maintain order and discipline in the party,” Tareen said, saying the party will act firmly against dissidents.

“We will not compromise on party policy,” he said.

Tareen added that those who voted for their personal interest will be kicked out from the party, and said PTI had issued written instructions to its local party leaders that PTI will not support PML-N.

Tareen said the deadline for replies to the show cause notices issued to party members is Monday.

“We will not compromise. PTI is an ideological party, not an ordinary political party. We do not do politics for the sake of politics.”
