PTI workers criticize changes to district cabinets

CHITRAL: PTI workers criticize changes to party’s district cabinets.

The PTI announced new cabinets for both Lower and Upper Chitral sending most of the office-bearers named last year packing or reshufling them.

PTI workers in Lotkoh, Shoghor, Karimabad union councils ctiticized demotion of Sartaj Ahmed Khan from the post of president to senior vice president and said he had been elected by the party workers in front of PTI Malakand division leadership in October last year.

Earlier, they had at a meeting  in Garam Chashma expressed their reservations about possible changes to the cabinet.

According to a notification issued by the PTI, Sajjad Ahmad Khan has been reappointed as the president of the PTI Lower Chitral district.

The other office-bearers are: Aminul Hassan, vice president; Shujaur Rehman, vice president; Faisal Salahuddin, general secretary; Muhammad Yaqub Khan, additional general secretary; Rehman Ali Shah, deputy general secretary (Chitral tehsil); Nisar Dastagir, deputy general secretary (Drosh town); Shuja, finance secretary, and Aminur Rehman, information secretary.

Upper Chitral district

Rehmat Ghazi, president; Miraj Khan, senior vice president; Ihsanullah and Jamshed Ahmed, vice presidents; Aftab M. Tahir, general secretary; Zulfi Hunar Shah, additional general secretary; Sarwar Uddin, deputy general secretary (Mastuj tehsil); Qayum Khan, deputy general secretary (Mulkhow tehsil); Babar, finance secretary, and Mukhtar, information secretary.

Party workers said most of the office-bearers have been included in the cabinets without taking them into confidence.

They said instead of parachute inductions, cabinets should consist of those who have for long rendered services for the party.

They also said due to such undemocratic decisions the PTI could not win any election in Chitral.

The recent decision about the cabinets without consensus of the workers will cause irreparable loss to the party in Chitral, they maintained.

  1. Shujaur Rehman, vice president and Faisal Salahuddin, general secretary, have been imposed by no other than Senator Samina Abid of PTI from Mansehra by begging PTI chief organizer Saifullah Niazi. The PTI has already failed to clinch a seat in 2013 and 2018 general elections, but with the induction rather forced installation of the duo it would prove to be the last nail in the coffin of the party in Chitral. This is my firm belief that with the so-called appointment of the duo having zero contribution for the party, the party will soon turn out to be a king’s party, for which nobody especially those believing in the philosophy of Imran Khan ‘tabdeeli’ are NOT and NEVER going to vote. The sincere leadership of the party should immediately ask Prime Minister Imran Khan that on what ground the duo has been handpicked. What’s their contribution and did they even slightly deserve to be in the cabinet of the party in a district like Chitral? If the PTI is so confident about leadership qualities, plant these guys for a union councilor seat, and I am sure things will be clear to the party. A particular segment of people have once become quite active to hijack PTI like they did with PML-Q when Musharraf was there. A stitch in time save nine. Write to the prime minsiter to dig into the controversy and who is behind handpicking of the duo.
