ISLAMABAD: Leaders and workers of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) continued to protest outside party Chairman Imran Khan’s residence in Bani Gala on the third consecutive day against the distribution of the party tickets.
Dozens of the workers from various constituencies have gathered outside the Bani Gala residence, demanding party tickets for their groups. Activists from Multan’s NA-154 constituency are demanding not to allot the ticket to former federal minister Sikandar Bosan.
Workers from NA-51 FATA are also speaking against the award of tickets. The protesters have urged Imran Khan to review the distribution of the tickets to the candidates. They have asked to provide them to ideological workers instead of ‘para-shooters.’
Earlier, the party delayed the announcement of the candidates for remaining constituencies for 72 hours. On Tuesday, a meeting of the party’s parliamentary board was also held. The members are scheduled to announce the new candidates after three days.
The scrutiny process of the candidates is also likely to continue for the next two days in the controversial constituencies of Islamabad, Sindh, Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
