Low turnout of Peshawar workers at Zaman Park irks Imran


Imran Khan, the chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), has expressed his dissatisfaction over the low turnout of party workers from Peshawar at his Zaman Park residence in Lahore for security duties.

During a meeting with workers from Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa at Zaman Park, Imran inquired about the presence of workers from Peshawar. In response, some workers raised their hands.

Observing the low turnout, the PTI chief remarked that “Peshawar looks weak to me… it seems that the passion in Peshawar is fading.”

Some party members however did not agree with the statement, with Ishtiaq Urmar, PTI’s Peshawar region president, clarifying that the largest number of workers at Zaman Park are from Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, particularly from Peshawar.

Urmar also stated that workers from Peshawar have been at the forefront of every movement of the party and that “Khan sahib had a misunderstanding which was later cleared up.”

He added that the party chief has acknowledged that workers from Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, and especially those from Peshawar, have provided support in every difficulty.

Earlier in the day, Imran Khan informed the Lahore High Court (LHC) that he had ‘concrete information’ of another ‘attack’ at his Zaman Park residence during the Eid holidays and requested the LHC to prevent police officials from arresting him.

The former prime minister made these claims during a hearing on his petition filed in the court to issue directives to concerned quarters to not take action against him in 121 first information reports (FIRs) registered against him

Imran informed the court that the incumbent government did not want to incarcerate him, rather they aimed to “eliminate” him as they had attempted in Wazirabad.

He furthered that he had “concrete information” that his residence in Lahore will be “attacked” during the Eid holidays as the government was aware that courts will be closed for the holidays.
