Imran refuses to meet party ‘defectors’

Imran Khan

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Sunday reportedly refused to meet the PTI’s defecting former members of the Punjab Assembly.

Moreover, during Chief Minister Pervaiz Elahi’s vote of confidence in the Punjab Assembly, PTI MPAs Faisal Cheema, Momina Waheed and Khurram Leghari were absent from the house.

The members were issued show-cause notices by the party and the PTI chief had instructed them to appear before the party Secretary General Asad Umar and present an explanation.

zIt may be noted that last year, 25 MPAs of the PTI were de-seated by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) for defying party directives and voting for Hamza Shehbaz for the post of the Punjab Chief Minister.
