The Rawalpindi offices of three major political parties have confined their activities to social platforms as offices remain closed for political activities, The Express Tribune learnt on Sunday.

Pakistan Peoples Party’s office on Liaquat Road and Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz’s office on Iqbal Road had been locked for weeks while that of ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf’s is only serving as the public secretariats of lawmakers. Sources said that various groups have been formed in all three major parties at district and city levels.

Each group tries to one up the other due to a tiff that emerged on awarding of tickets in different elections besides positions in organisation.

Meanwhile, only the offices of Jamat-e-Islami and Jamiat Ulema Islam (Fazl) are functional on a regular basis where meetings are held to keep parties mobilised at the lower level. Furthermore, different groups in PPP, PML-N, and PTI have started lobbying for accommodating their supporters for local bodies’ elections.
