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.

Laghari was a minister under the PML-Q government in Sindh

Nadir Khan Leghari has served as the provincial minister of irrigation and power, as part of the Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid government in 2002. He lost his seat (PS-7 Ghotki-III) to the Pakistan Peoples Party's Sardar Ahmed Ali Khan Pitafi in the 2008 general elections by a slim margin.

Great choice Imran Khan! Nadir Leghari is an honest, educated man with a clean background. People who don't know Mr. Leghari have no clue. He is capable of putting PTI on the right track in Sindh.

howcome no remarks against ET in the 70% headlines that bash PPP, 25% for the coalition and Punjab gov. ? on the 5% that don't make IK seem like a messiah everyone starts shouting. I think the problem is not with ET but with the readers, especially PTI readers!
