Crisis on Imran Khan’s chair, so far 38 leaders have left the party


Imran Khan founded the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party in 1996. At that time Imran had never thought that a time would come when his party members would leave him one by one. The list of those who left PTI is getting longer. Former Special Assistant to Punjab Chief Minister Firdous Ashiq Awan also quit the party on Friday. So far, a total of 38 PTI leaders have left Imran Khan’s side.

Will not be surprised if Firdaus Ashiq Awan leaves the party. The surprising thing is that while leaving the party, he made a big allegation against Imran. He said that after the May 9 incident, the question of continuing in the party does not arise. Those who attacked the army base have attacked the foundation and ideology of Pakistan. Firdous also claimed that after the arrest of Imran Khan, the riots were hatched at his house in Zaman Park.

Imran’s wickets kept falling one after the other.

Imran’s helplessness and loneliness can be gauged from the fact that his party’s ‘wickets’ are falling one after the other. Till now at least 38 leaders have left their party. Surprisingly, it does not include casual leaders. The names of former ministers and leaders close to Imran figure in the list of those leaving the party. Now the question arises why everyone is leaving Imran’s sinking ship.

Why are leaders leaving the party?

Actually the world saw the pictures of Imran’s arrest and then the uproar in Pakistan. Enraged by the arrest, Imran’s supporters threw the country into riots. Be it Lahore… Be it Karachi or Peshawar, every city of Pakistan was surrounded by flames and Imran supporters. Demanding the release of Imran, his supporters also set fire to the army headquarters. This attack on Pakistani army has hurt its reputation.

The scene of arson and sabotage shocked the army and the government. Both the Pakistani army and government vowed to retaliate. Imran was already under threat of action under the Army Act. From above the government decides who was involved in the violence. Action will also be taken against them under the Army Act. Now it is important to understand here that if a person is found guilty under the Army Act, he can be hanged.

The government has already initiated action against top party leaders, including Imran, for their involvement in the riots. The sword of arrest is also hanging on all of them. Courts are also being bypassed to avoid arrest. It is being said that the government has given the accused leaders the option of first condemning the May 9 violence and then leaving the party. On top of that, there is also the fear of the Army Act. It is believed that due to this everyone is leaving the party.

How many people left the party?

Till now the number of people who have left PTI has gone up to 38. Which includes former ministers to big leaders. Not only this, some were considered very close to Imran. But when the ploy of the army and the government failed, they too left their captain’s side. Leaders who left the party included Shireen Mazari, Fawad Chaudhary, Asad Umar, Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Jehangir Tareen, Aleem Khan, Akbar S. Names like Babar, Hammad Azhar, Abdul Aleem Khan are included. A total of 15 former ministers have left the party.
