PESHAWAR:


Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf senior worker Sumaiya Baloch has appealed to the party’s chairperson to reinstate her. She was sacked for allegedly violating party discipline and voting against PTI in Town-IV during the nazim and naib nazim elections on August 30.


Speaking to journalists at Peshawar Press Club on Tuesday, Baloch said she joined PTI as she firmly believed in PTI Chairperson Imran Khan’s political vision.


According to Baloch, the polling process ended before time and the councillors reached the house on time.

“I was among those who reached on time but could not vote because I was unaware of the proceedings,” she said. “I know it is my mistake for being unaware. Nevertheless, I strongly request Imran to accept
my apology.”


Baloch maintained if her party position will not be restored, she will give up politics. Over 51 councillors did not vote for their party’s candidate running for district, town and tehsil nazim and naib nazim seats. PTI had issued show-cause notices to these councillors and sacked 11 of them for voting against PTI.

Kamran khattak | 5 years ago | Reply Senior worker ?! Seriously ? She joined PTI only 6 months ago and because of close friendship with Yaseen Khalil she was given the seat.. Yaseen Khalil asked them not to vote for them.. Thats a pure lie that she didnt know the procedure etc.. Yaseen khalil will be kicked out soon as well..
azmat | 5 years ago | Reply No way. I will strongly oppose it. She should be made an example. The reason she is giving doesn't sound plausible either.
