PTI leaders ‘oppose’ seat adjustment with JI




From the Newspaper | Khalid Hasnain | 10 hours ago

LAHORE, April 4: It seems some key leaders of the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) are against seat adjustment with the Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) and their opposition is stopping the two parties from reaching an agreement on seats despite last month’s talks between their party heads on this issue.

JI chief Syed Munawar Hasan and PTI chairman Imran Khan formed committees at provincial as well as national level on March 25 to finalise the seat adjustment plan for various constituencies, especially in Punjab.

“Mr Hasan met Mr Khan twice in recent days to discuss the seat adjustment issue, but still there is no progress on the issue,” says a JI official in Mansoora.

He said some PTI leaders were opposing their party’s plan for seat adjustment with the JI.

A PTI leader from southern Punjab said his party’s top three leaders were responsible for the delay in finalisation of the seat adjustment plan with the JI. “Three of our top party leaders from southern Punjab are against seat adjustment with the JI,” he said.

Talking to Dawn, Hasan said there was no progress on the seat adjustment issue after formation of committees by the two parties last month. “It is because of Javaid Hashmi who has yet to call a meeting of the committee, which was meant to discuss the seat adjustment plan at the national level,” Hasan said.

PTI information secretary Shafqat Mahmood
said provincial leaders from both parties were in contact with each other on the seat adjustment issue.

He said the PTI had no ideological differences with the JI, but there was difference of opinion within his party on seat adjustment with the JI.

Had JI asked Liaqat Baluch and Fareed Paracha that why did they meet US Counselate during these days of Elections?

PMLN will easily win from Lahore therefore they are not offering JI anything from Lahore. I think JI should go with PTI if they really want to win few seats from Punjab.
