Lahore (June 23, 2018) Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Waleed Iqbal expressed dismay over the distribution of tickets and said that tickets have been given to those members whose face no one has ever seen.
The ticket distribution was extremely unfair in Lahore, he remarked, adding that “party workers were exploited”.
While addressing a press conference in Lahore, Iqbal said: “my press conference would be nothing like that of either Chaudhry Nisar or Zaeem Qadri. It will just focus on unfair distribution of party tickets in Lahore.” Only Lahore remained silent over the unfair distribution of tickets, he said.Chairman Imran Khan has told us time and again that it is important to raise your voice against injustice, Iqbal remarked. “Chairman sahab, I appeal to you to now make the decision over worker’s complaints in haste. Please review the list of ticket holders till the last day.”
Party leader Shah Mehmood Qureshi remarked that he was unaware of the list of ticket holders, while Jahangir Tareen also said that list of women ticket holders was unjust, Iqbal added.
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan announced on Friday that he will make a final decision on the award of tickets to candidates for the forthcoming elections in next three days.
Addressing disgruntled party workers camped outside his Bani Gala residence, the party chief said that the only criterion he is taking into consideration is merit.
