Islamabad: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran on Thursday announced to expel party senators who allegedly sold their votes during the recently held Senate elections.
“We will take action and expel all those senators from the party who sold their vote against a huge sum. We will take action against them even if it costs or party. We don’t need corrupt and black sheep in our party,” he said while talking to the media here.
He said that they will consult their lawyers to thrash out a strategy to go after the horse-traders, who sold their votes for money and against the party line. The PTI chief also invited all politicians to do politics on principles and ideology instead of promoting dynastic politics and protecting the exploitative system.
He also alleged that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif was not an ideological leader but rather he was the “leader of a mafia”, who, according to him, was responsible for all the mess in the country, especially on the political horizon.
The PTI chief also lashed out at JUI-F chief Maulana Fazal Rehman and PkMAP chief Mehmood Khan Achakzai for putting hurdles in the FATA reforms and its subsequent merger with the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province, as according to him, the enemy was exploiting the political vacuum in the tribal region.
