KARACHI: The Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) dissolved its Sindh Executive Council on Saturday, and has appointed former provincial minister Nadir Khan Leghari as the Sindh chapter president.
Imran Ismail, advisor to party chief Imran Khan, confirmed the development. However, PTI Sindh Information Secretary Sarwar Rajput was clueless about the new appointment and said that an emergency meeting of the (now defunct) ‘Sindh Executive Council’ was currently underway and included Naeemul Haque, who, till Saturday, was the head of PTI in Sindh. They would decide on a course of action soon, he said.
Sarwar added that ‘plots’ were being hatched by people who did not want to see the party progress, and that they would contact party head Imran Khan after their meeting. .
It is expected that the new leadership in the province will be reappointed.
Haque could not be immediately reached for a comment.
