I strongly object to PTI: Yar Muhammad Rind | Instant News

QUETTA / SUKKUR: Special Assistant to Prime Minister Sardar Yar Muhammad Rind said on Tuesday that he strongly objected to the ruling PTI, complaining that he was never consulted on important matters.

“I am the head of parliament from the PTI, but I have never been asked for my opinion on any important issue,” said Rind while speaking to a private TV channel. “Despite being a member of the cabinet, the prime minister didn’t give me five minutes for the meeting,” he complained.

He said Balochistan was treated unfairly in terms of Senate elections. He said there were no provincial representatives on the party’s parliamentary council.

The PTI leader criticized Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani for questioning his relationship with PTI. “Whom should Sadiq Sanjrani (important decisions) take,” he asked. “We are nothing compared to Chief Minister Jam Kamal Khan,” he complained.

“The Senate election will have an impact on the whole country. I can’t say what will happen (during the election), ”he said. Meanwhile, PTI’s senior leader, former CM Sindh Liaquat Ali Jatoi, while addressing a press conference in Dadu accused the PTI leadership of giving Senate tickets to Saifullah Abro for Rp.350 million, while PTI had not yet formed a parliamentary council to distribute Senate tickets.

Liaquat Jatoi accused the Sindh governor of being behind the wrong decision to ticket the party Senate in the province with money. He said Abro joined PTI six months ago and did not contribute to the party.

Liaquat Jatoi said that Haleem Adil Shaikh was flying high, and that CM Murad Ali Shah was not behind the attack on him. He said that the Shaykh arranged such a drama himself. He said he had political differences with Murad Ali Shah and the PPP, but never had any personal clashes. He said that Haleem Adil should be asked what he said.

Liaquat Jatoi said that if Imran Khan did not pay attention to his concerns, he would conclude his political strategy on February 26 after consulting party workers and friends. He said the party attaches importance to those who join by parachute. He said that the PTI central leadership ignored the PTI Sindh leadership.

When asked if he had decided to join the PPP, he replied that when he was chief minister in Sindh, he had taken good care of Asif Ali Zardari. Previously, KK MPA Liaquat Khattak and Sultan Muhammad Khan had already expressed their objections because they were not invited to the KP MPA meeting chaired by Imran Khan in Peshawar.

Meanwhile, when issuing a strong rebuttal to Liaquat Jatoi’s incessant, PTI Senate candidate Saifullah Abro admitted to filing a libel suit against the former.

Responding to the accusation, Saifullah Abro in a message broadcast on television told Jatoi that he was undergoing a defamation suit worth Rs2 billion and now they would meet in court. Claiming to come from the middle class, the PTI Senate candidate brushed aside the charges raised by Liaquat Ali Jatoi and said that he was a candidate for the PTI Senate in the ‘technical seat’. He said the former CM had run a defamation campaign against him for a long time. Speaking to Jatoi, the Senate candidate said he sent him a defamation notice worth Rs2 billion and “now the responsibility is now on him to prove the unreasonable charges in court.”

Abro’s legal notice required Jatoi to bring up and show the public any evidence he had to prove his point. “Your statement is based on a political grudge because my client in a short time has worked for the welfare of the people of Sindh as well as Pakistan and you out of political jealousy have made false statements against my client that defame my client in public in general,” read the notice. .

Jatoi has been advised to apologize “in the same way you make a false statement, through print or electronic media”. He will have to pay Rs2 billion in compensation within 14 days of receiving the legal notification otherwise legal proceedings will be carried out against him, according to the notification.

Meanwhile, the prime minister’s assistant for political communications Shahbaz Gill has demanded that Jatoi provide evidence of his allegations, warning him that if he cannot do so the party will take “tough action” against him.
