A number of disgruntled Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) workers on Thursday “welcomed” party chief Imran Khan with a sit-in outside his Bani Gala residence following his return from Umrah, a private media outlet reported.
The protesters, hailing from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s (KP) Buner district staged a protest demonstration over, what they claimed was “favouritism” in the distribution of party tickets for the upcoming general polls.
The protesters stopped Imran’s vehicle and raised slogans like “Give respect to ideological party workers” and those against “unjust distribution of party tickets”.
Deprived of tickets, the party workers had been staging a sit-in outside Imran’s residence for a few days. They, however, dispersed peacefully after registering their protest.
