LAHORE: Imran Khan, the chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and former Prime Minister, announced via Twitter that the party tickets issued for the Punjab elections will be re-evaluated, starting from the first day of Eidul Fitr.
The review process will continue until April 26, with four-member committees submitting names for consideration.
Additionally, Khan expressed concern about the treatment of senior PTI leader Ali Amin Gandapur, whose abduction and detention have been used as a means of humiliation and mental torture. He stated that Gandapur’s treatment is solely due to his position as an ideological party worker, who is highly valued by PTI members.
Khan emphasized that those who use violence are only humiliating themselves and creating a divide between the state and the nation. He drew comparisons to the terrible past of East Pakistan, where similar activities had disastrous results, and stated that these actions have only increased our respect and love for Ali Amin.
Couple of days ago, PTI issued tickets to party candidate for the upcoming Punjab elections on May 14. The Supreme Court of Pakistan on April ordered the Election Commission of Pakistan to hold the elections in Punjab on May 14. In this regard, the apex court also ordered the State Bank of Pakistan to release Rs21 billion to the electoral watchdog.
