KARACHI: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf will expel MNA Dawar Kundi for alleging that Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Revenue Minister Ali Amin Gandapur protected the suspects involved in stripping, parading a 16-year-old in Dera Ismail Khan.
While speaking to media via video link, party chair Imran Khan remarked called Dawar Kundi a “dissident”, adding he “is an estranged member of the party. He is a liar. Kundi will be expelled from the party.”
Imran also said that Kundi has been making statements against the party as well as against the chief minister. “He doesn’t even attend party meetings,” he added.
“If any member thinks that something is wrong then he should complain to the party leaders but he [Dawar] goes and speaks in front of the media.”
Imran remarked that the party has a proper code of conduct regarding the issue and a disciplinary cell, which deals with such issues.
Over the allegations against Gandapur, Imran said that “there are false. I have spoken to the IG [Inspector General] who informed me that he has no pressure from Gandapur or anyone in the investigation of the case.”
“Ali Amin says whoever is responsible for the [Dera Ismail Khan] incident should be awarded death sentence,” Imran added.
On November 9, Dawar Khan Kundi penned down a letter alleging that Ali Amin Khan Gandapur, is related to the family, which initiated the assault on the girl.
Kundi, who was elected from NA-25 Tank, also asked PTI Chairperson Imran Khan and Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa to removed Ali Amin from the post.
Reacting to the allegations, Ali Amin had claimed that Kundi is using the case for his personal interests. “He is a political rival and is forcing the survivor to say what he wants.”
The heat between the PTI leaders continued as Kundi accused Gandapur of being in touch with members of banned outfits while speaking on TV Programme.
Kundi added that this is the reason why “Imran Khan was not acting against the latter”.
Imran is scared of Ali Amin as he was in contact with members of banned outfits, Kundi remarked. –Web Desk
