ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan will preside over a meeting of the party leaders and parliamentarians at his Banigala residence on Sunday (today) to discuss the party’s future strategy for the ongoing session of the National Assembly.
A party spokesman told Dawn that the leadership had directed all the members of parliament to ensure their presence in the meeting so that a decision could be reached with consensus after reviewing the political situation in the country.
Sources in the party said that besides targeting Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif the PTI would now also attack Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan following the release of the report of the commission set up to probe the Aug 8 Civil Hospital Quetta bomb blast.
Both the PTI and the Pakistan Peoples Party are now demanding Chaudhry Nisar’s resignation on the basis of the report which has cited inaction against the banned outfits as one of the major factors behind the carnage.
It was after a long deferment of the Panamagate case by the Supreme Court that the PTI last week decided to return to the National Assembly to raise the issue of the scam on the floor of parliament.
Besides, the PTI is planning public meetings in major cities till the time the SC forms a new bench to hear the Panamagate case in January.
The PTI chairman has already constituted a committee under Shah Mehmood Qureshi to devise a plan for the rallies and public meetings.
The party has also decided to constitute a parliamentary board so that it can finalise a list of candidates in every constituency before the next general elections which, according to Mr Khan, are expected any time in 2017.
