ISLAMABAD: After Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) defector Fawad Chaudhry expressed desire to rejoin the party’s fold, the party’s core committee closed door on those politicians who parted ways with the party in difficult times. PTI Chairman Barrister Gohar Ali Khan, after chairing the party’s core committee session on Monday, rejected the existence of any “forward bloc”. “There are no groups within the party, however, some disciplinary issues always exist in political parties,” he added. Gohar said that he suggested Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Omar Ayub Khan to take back his resignation as the party’s secretary general. He added that all core committee members asked Ayub to withdraw his decision to step down from the party’s top post. The PTI chairman said that they would request incarcerated party founder Imran Khan to accept the core committee’s recommendations. Another PTI senior leader refuted reports of grouping within the former ruling party. He, however, admitted that “three or four” people were creating problems. In the core committee meeting today, discussions were held regarding “disciplinary actions” against some leaders. He announced that the Imran-founded party would now take action without compromising the party discipline. The core committee “unanimously” approved three resolutions regarding Ayub’s resignation, PTI deserters and disciplinary actions against those who violated party policies. A resolution stated that Ayub’s services as the party’s secretary general in testing time could not be forgotten which are now vital in the current circumstances. The core committee prayed to the PTI founder not to accept his resignation.
