Shah Mehmood Qureshi, vice-chairman of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), in a press conference on Friday had spoken about the internal rifts in the party with regard to the ongoing protests over ‘unfair’ ticket distribution from South Punjab. He had said that his competition was only in the political arena and he did not consider Tareen a competitor because the latter could not contest the polls.
Addressing a press conference in Lodhran, Tareen said he had heard Qureshi’s press conference but did not want to comment on it.
“It would be inappropriate to comment on Qureshi’s statements,” he said, adding that none of the party leaders should communicate matters through press conferences.
“These things cannot be done in PTI,” he said, stressing that decisions on internal rifts should be made behind closed doors.
“It is inappropriate to discuss any matters between individuals on the media,” Tareen said.
