ISLAMABAD – The time for ousting the government through street agitation had passed, this is what an English local largest daily believes about PTI politician’s suggestions to Imran Khan – Party Chairman.
The local daily says in editorial about the political preparations of upcoming senate elections. In his trademark belligerent style, PTI chief Imran Khan reacted yesterday to his party’s failure to secure a deal with the PPP on the Senate elections to be held in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly on March 5 by accusing the PPP and JUI-F — and the PML-N for good measure — of corruption and indulging in horse-trading,” the editorial stated.
The editorial further stated about internal issue of PTI as “while Mr Khan is all too willing to lash out at others, the simple fact of the matter is that much of the problem in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly lies within the PTI camp. Were the PTI’s own MPAs not willing to consider voting for Senate candidates of other parties against the direction of the PTI leadership, there would be no need for the frantic, eleventh-hour negotiations between the PTI and other political parties.”
The workers of PTI were also suggesting Imrn Khan to go back to the parliament as the editorial continued “It had appeared that the sensible voices within the PTI were on the verge of convincing Mr Khan that the time for ousting the government through street agitation had passed.”
They believed the party was better off building on its position inside parliament to mount a robust opposition to government policies the PTI is opposed to and also to press for the much-needed and long-promised electoral reforms.
Concluding the possibilities and options of PTI, it stated that “There is also the possibility that a return to the National Assembly will bring to bear some pressure on the PML-N to deliver on its promise to debate and enact meaningful electoral reforms.”
