PESHAWAR: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf lawmakers have once again delayed their protest against Chief Minister Pervez Khattak and his government on the request of party chairperson Imran Khan.
“We have been summoned by Imran for a meeting at his residence in Bani Gala, Islamabad on Saturday (today) at 4pm,” PTI MPA Yaseen Khalil said while addressing a news conference on Friday evening. The moot will be convened to discuss the implementation. As a result, lawmakers have postponed their protest.
“A meeting to discuss the means of embarking on protest against the K-P government on August 28 was in progress when Imran Khan contacted us on telephone,” Khalil said. “Imran has asked us to meet him on all the issues. In light of Imran’s invitation we have once again delayed the scheduled [protest].”
At least six members of National Assembly and five members of the K-P Assembly participated in the meeting to discuss the protest. The two MPAs were elected as independent candidates in the 2013 general election but later became part of PTI.
