KARACHI: Aamir Liaquat Hussain, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) member of National Assembly from NA-245, has publicly voiced reservations about local party leadership’s decision of not inviting him to a meeting at the Governor’s House.

Newly-sworn in Governor Imran Ismail invited all MNAs and MPAs from Karachi to the meeting except him, he tweeted on Tuesday night expressing annoyance over the alleged discrimination against him.

He also used PPP co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari’s quote “is tarha to hota hai is tarha kay kamo mein” (this is what happens in these types of situations).

Later, speaking to a private TV channel, he said that the Governor’s House is still functional and sessions are being held there despite the party leadership’s stance of not utilising the vicinity in as part of its austerity drive.

Liaquat also expressed his disapproval of Prime Minister Imran Khan’s reluctance to visit the city to lay floral wreath at the mausoleum of the Quaid-e-Azam. He said he was unable to contact the PTI chief to invite him to Karachi, despite several attempts.

Aamir Liaquat served contempt notice by Supreme Court

Reacting to Liaquat’s criticism of the party leadership, one of the party’s spokespersons Azhar Laghari said the prime minister will visit the city at an appropriate time. “People of Karachi love Imran Khan and none of PTI’s elected representatives can deny the fact that the masses voted for Imran Khan and not for any other individual,” he said in a tweet.

Aamir Liaquat is also expected to hold a press conference at his residence soon.

Earlier this month, the Supreme Court issued a contempt of court notice to Liaquat for using derogatory language against the media and others.

“How can we let such people sit in the parliament who lack manners to speak to others,” Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar remarked while hearing the case. “Those who can’t control their speech should not be allowed in the parliament.”

    This is where Imran Khan starts regretting including this fake doctor into PTI ?
    I am big supporter of IK but waiting for the day he says that including this guy was the biggest mistake of his career… remember IK said that his marriage to RK was the biggest mistake of his life… well he would forget that pretty soon. Recommend

    Imran Khan went back on his Promise and Disappointed people of Karachi, By not retaining his Karachi MNA seat. He promised us that the Prime Minister will be from Karachi.

    We Voted for Imran Khans Ideology and his promises for Karachi not for any Amir Liaquat, Imran Ismail, Faisal vavda or any other good for nothing element.

    We Karachihites have been deprived and isolated from the rest of Pakistan, since 1952. We want our rights and city to be clean and tidy and free from criminals.Recommend
