Former PTI information secretary to take legal action against party dismissal
- On Saturday, the PTI expelled its former information secretary, Ahmad Jawad, for “violating the party’s constitution”.
- Says PTI voters and workers have ‘seen Imran Khan’s true colours’.
- Said Overseas Pakistanis used as Automated Teller Machines (ATM).
Former PTI Central Information Secretary Ahmed Jawad announced on Sunday that he would take legal action against the party for terminating its membership.
On Saturday, the PTI expelled Jawad from the party for “violating the party’s constitution” on social media and “defaming” senior leadership.
Talk to Geo News, Jawad said his dismissal from the party was “unlawful”, adding that “voters and PTI workers have now seen Imran Khan’s true colors”.
The former PTI member said that in the past 74 years, “no one has cheated the nation like the PTI did, while overseas Pakistanis were used as ATMs ( ATM)”.
It should be mentioned here that Jawad had criticized the policies of the ruling party.
Taking to his Twitter account, he said he would reveal the reasons why he remained silent for so long on “the fascism and incompetence of the PTI”, asking his followers to “stay tuned”.
He further asked Prime Minister Imran Khan, “How did your illegal Bani Gala house and Constitution Avenue apartment become legal? Can’t the houses of the poor be regularized like Constitution Avenue was regularized?”
Subsequently, the PTI expelled the former information secretary for “violating the party constitution” on social media.
According to a statement released by the PTI’s Standing Committee on Accountability and Discipline (SCAD) on January 12, a justification was served on Ahmad asking him to explain his position within seven days of receiving the notice, but the disgruntled executive did not respond to the notice.
After receiving the second show cause notice, Jawad sent a response, which was received by SCAD on January 21; however, he did not explain his position, instead admitting that he posted over 40 tweets while SCAD only saw two of his tweets.
“The SCAD Sub-Committee observed that there were various forums within the party for Jawad to air his feelings/narrative in front of the party as he used social and electronic media to achieve his goal. [to] slander/slander the senior leadership of the party, causing serious damage to the party,” the statement read.
The subcommittee, after analyzing the facts of the case and reading Jawad’s response, found him “in serious violation of the party constitution”. Therefore, it “decided unanimously to remove Ahmad Jawad’s party membership from the register of party members”.
