Politics: PTI Chairman excuses to visit IDP’s camp


Islamabad: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Thursday excused to visit the IDPs camp in Bannu with Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. According to media reports yesterday Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif invited PTI chief Imran Khan to undertake a joint visit with him to the camps established for the internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Bannu district of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa on June 27.

In response, Imran stated that he has already visited the camp on and will keep visiting the area until complete rehabilitation of the people displaced from North Waziristan. The PTI chief rejected the offer, saying that his party has planned a rally in Bahawalpur on Friday.

Nearly half a million people have fled a military operation against Taliban strongholds in North Waziristan. Tens of thousands of families have fled to the town of Bannu, close to North Waziristan, while hundreds more have moved further afield to Lakki Marwat, Karak and Dera Ismail Khan towns, since the offensive began in mid-June.
