Imran announces to remove PTI members who sold votes during Senate elections

He told journalists here after a meeting of the party's central executive committee (CEC) that the PTI lawmakers, who sold their votes during the Senate election, would be removed from the party.

He singled out unemployment as the biggest problem, and said tribal youth who go overseas will be provided job opportunities in the area, calling for special funds to develop FATA.

Imran Khan is to show up to court for his involvement in 4 cases, which includes SSP Torture Case, an attack on the PTV head office by PTI protestorsm and PAT protestors during the sit-ins in Islamabad back in 2014, attack on the parliament where they clashed with the police and also violation of The Loud Speakers Act.

"Such electables after winning elections put their loyalties on sale to a winning party", he said, adding, "The PTI also supports creation of a new province consisting of areas of southern Punjab and these electables must join the PTI for this cause".

He said he would announce the PTI's 100-day plan and party's manifesto for the upcoming elections during the Lahore rally scheduled for April 29. He alleged the previous caretaker government had failed to ensure free and fair elections in 2013.

The Parliament in Pakistan was rocked by the uproar created over the photograph on Wednesday, with opposition party Pakistan People's Party (PPP)'s member Ramesh Lal accusing the ruling party of hurting the religious sentiments of the Hindus, which he said was against the Constitution of the country.

He also promised to abolish the permit system, which causes enormous hardship and agony to local people.

He said that several parties had reached a consensus on KP-FATA merger, which was unfortunately sabotaged by Maulana Fazlur Rehman, and that FATA reforms were not implemented.

He also said that it was the time for politicians to do ideological politics for the sake of Pakistan and for this objective; they should join the platform of some political party.

"The PTI will continue to fight for voting right of overseas Pakistanis until reasonable arrangements have been made to ensure their participation in the forthcoming general elections", Khan resolved.

Khan lauded the chief justice for his efforts to grant voting rights to overseas Pakistanis.
