ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has rejected one of its founding members and prominent lawyer Hamid Khan’s statement terming it an absurd attempt to gain political mileage.
Earlier in an interview with a Private News Channel, Hamid Khan stated that his owns PTI as Imran Khan does but also alleged that the establishment has got the party under its control.
While reacting on Hamid Khan’s statement on Monday, the President Insaf Lawyers Forum Shahid Naseem Gondal said that his statement is an amalgamation of contradictions.
“We are aware of the intentions behind the politically motivated statement of Hamid Khan”, he said adding that Hamid Khan mustn’t twist facts in a bid to retain his declining fame in the legal fraternity.
Shahid Naseem Gondal asked Hamid Khan to apprise the nation about his reservations over the ongoing accountability process. He went on to add that masses are cognisant to the fact that accountability across the board is the testament of PM Imran Khan’s twenty two years political struggle.
Furthermore, he said that attempts to paint PTI as establishment’s handpicked party by Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and now Hamid Khan have come to naught and rejected by masses.
The President Insaf Lawyers Forum urged Hamid Khan to join the parties whose narrative he is trumpeting. Ha also asked PTI leadership to take necessary disciplinary action against Hamid Khan for the vile statement.
