Cabinet imposed from outside not acceptable: PTI workers

CHITRAL: Workers of the ruling PTI at a convention here on Thursday rejected the recently-formed district cabinet and made it clear to the party leadership that any such decision without taking them on board would never be acceptable to them.

The party workers and members belonging to the PTI youth, labour, student wings and Insaf teachers association passed a unanimous resolution which they said represented the sentiments and aspirations of the workers.

The resolution was handed over to PTI Upper Chitral leader Shahzada Sikendarul Mulk for conveying it to the party’s central leadership in Islamabad, including the head of the PTI’s reorganization unit Siaufullah Khan Niazi.

Besides Shahzada Sikendar, senior party leaders Sartaj Ahmed Khan, Haji Sultan Muhammad, Israr Uddin Kasana, Muhammad Yaqoob, Raziuddin, Nazir Ahmed Khan, Israr Saboor and Haji Gul Nawaz spoke on the occasion.

They criticized district president Sajjad Ahmed Khan and former president Abdul Latif and said these two rivals of the past have now joined hands for their own self-interest even though they never wanted unity in the party.

They have no vote bank even in their own areas and therefore have always been against inclusion of influential and popular people in the party in order to pave the way for their own monopoly, they added.

The speakers made it clear to the party high command that the workers were the actual asset of the party and imposing anyone on them would not be in the interest of the future of the PTI.

Shahzada Sikendar said he would convey the reservations of the workers to the party high command so that the actual picture could become clear to it.

He regretted that some people in the PTI had always been against inclusion of newcomers in the party and also did not give importance to the opinion of the workers which was against the vision of party chief Imran Khan.

Sartaj Ahmed Khan stressed the need to give due importance to the opinion of the workers and said those who caused fissures in the PTI were actually traitor of not only the party but also the area.

  1. It is sad that while PTI is in power its resources the government resources are being used by the self styled leader of Chamber of Commerce to put up an alternate political leadership. This gentleman is an agent of an ex district nazim and is also his think tank who helped him spread parochial ideas in a place known for its social harmony. It is well known that the President of Chamber of Commerce does nor have a tomatoe shop but cliams to be head of Chitral’s businesd chamber.
    Similarly, he has never worked with any community organisation undertaking community work but has become the President of Chitral’s community organisations. He did this by telling these naive bodies that he will capture the CDLD Project with the District Nazim and create a post retiremwnt post for him. But unfortunately the plan misfired at terrible cost to Malakand Division. Now the funds of CDLD which were meant for Malakand division are being shared with fifteen other districts. We in PTI should be aware of such negative minds

  2. Sikander Shazda should not and MUST not be given any responsibility within the party as enough people from his clan have already managed to get lucrative slots in Chitral. If he managed to get one, then make sure the PTI is gone. Gone down the drain in Chitral.

    Saboor is a good guy. Rehmat Ghazi is a liability. Lateef is the best choice as he has in his credit of staying with the party when Sikander and Co used to chant Pervez Musharraf zindabad at a jalsa at Atalique bazar.

    Then some of his close aides and relatives took vote in the name of Musharraf but denied unless they were left with no option but shouted full throated slogan of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif zindabad on the hilltops of Lowari at a function in presence Nawaz Sharif.

    With the conviction of Sharif the “loyalist” of the Sharif is now following in the footstep of Haji Malik Riaz of Behria Town and busy in full time thekadari. The job which best suites him.

    The reason why Sikander is becoming overconfident is because a “restaurateur” is pushing him for something where there is no chance for him to a make a career.

    And Dr Faizi, your hatred for Aabpara is not going to benefit you no matter how hard you try to press on it. So better enjoy your pensioned life instead of indulging into these things.

  4. This is an irony with all populist parties. It was very peculiar with PPP. The party leadership would encourage intra party fighting but both sides should be chanting” Benazir Zindabad”. At the end the Assembly candidature ticket would be given to whomever Benazir wanted regardless of what workers wanted. Imran Khan is following same policy. As long as there is “Imran Khan zindabad ” slogan from both warring sides, he will be happy. The party appointments/tickets are given at the whims of the leadership. Workers are only treated like prostitutes to be used and thrown aside.
