If the election schedule is not revealed right away, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has threatened to launch the “Jail Bharo Tehreek” and reveal its information.
At a meeting with Senator Ijaz Chaudhry, the leader of the “Jail Bharo Tehreek,” the PTI chief evaluated the group. The PTI chairman announced a start date for the movement, and the party decided that arrests would be made in stages.
In a meeting with Senator Ijaz Chaudhry, the movement’s main organizer, the PTI leader discussed the “Jail Bharo Tehreek.”
Once the PTI chairman revealed a date for the movement’s start, the party decided that arrests would be made in stages.
200 party members from Lahore and five leaders would participate in the movement on the first day, and 200 party members from Peshawar and five leaders would participate on the second day.
Party officials and members from a city would show up for arrest every day. The movement would involve at least 3,000 employees from Pakistan’s major cities.
Ijaz was given instructions by Imran to gather information from all provincial and division presidents. The senator promised the party leader that he would personally assess how the provinces had been preparing for the migration and would soon submit a report.
As the ECP and provincial governor couldn’t agree on a date for the elections, a separate meeting was held to talk about the Punjab Assembly elections under the leadership of its chief Imran Khan.
Participating PTI leaders included Asad Umar, Fawad Chaudhry, Farrukh Habib, Mussarat Jamshed Cheema, and Hammad Azhar.
The PTI gave Azhar, the general secretary of central Punjab and a former federal minister, a party ticket for the by-election in Lahore’s NA-126, the same seat he won in the 2018 elections.
The prospect of President Arif Alvi’s constitutional function was also discussed during the meeting as legal issues were considered.
According to the former prime minister, the constitution was being broken as the Punjab Governor Balighur Rehman and the Election Commission of Pakistan purposefully delayed announcing the election’s date.
Asad Umar, the secretary general of the PTI, spoke at a press conference on Tuesday with Fawad and Azhar and emphasized the need for the Punjab Assembly election to be announced right away or else the group would start the “Jail Bharo” movement.
“We will take all possible steps to defend the Constitution.”
Umar said four days had passed since the Lahore High Court gave a decision on the Punjab Assembly elections. “The elections must be held within 90 days, as required by the court’s judgment and the Constitution itself. The Punjab government had to be consulted before the ECP could announce a date for the elections, he continued.
Fawad charged PML-N Senior Vice President Maryam Nawaz with launching a social media campaign against the judiciary. It should be noticed that the social media accounts supporting the ECP are also seen criticizing the superior courts. He asserted that Maryam Nawaz seemed to be in charge of the campaign.
Azhar criticized the administration for acting against Shaukat Tarin, a former federal finance minister. “What is his crime? He is held responsible for the financial mess created by former federal finance minister Miftah Ismail and finance minister Ishaq Dar.
