Islamabad: Taking notice of the highhandedness and alleged violence meted out against the media persons during PTI’s intraparty polls in Gujranwala, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf PTI Chief Election Commissioner Hamid Khan Advocate has said that the party chief Imran Khan has ordered immediate probe into the incident which would submit its report within 24 hours and disciplinary action would be taken against those found involved in the incident.
In a statement issued here on Tuesday, Hamid Khan said that those involved in the violence would not be spared and they would be made example for others. “The PTI chairman Imran Khan has constituted a committee and directed to submit report to him in this regard within 24 hours, so that stern disciplinary action could be taken against whosoever involved in the incident,” he added.
“The party’s election commission will take stern actions against all found involved in creating chaos and disorder in intraparty polls anywhere in the country,”
Hamid Khan vowed. He said that the PTI’s workers were the real torchbearer of democracy, hence, they should shun their mutual differences if any and tolerate defeat wholeheartedly, as in politics like sports one has to win while another has to face defeat, but they must show sportsmanship.
Hamid Khan said that the PTI’s party polls were not a normal achievement and rather it was a great milestone in the journey to true democracy in the country. “The PTI workers have proved the difference between people with autocratic mindsets pretending to be democrats and the true democrats who take practical steps to bring in democratic order within their own party,” he added.
