The ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has ended party membership of its former central information secretary Ahmad Jawad after the issuance of two show-cause notices after he levelled allegations against central leadership, reported 24NewsHD Saturday.
The ruling party’s standing committee on accountability and discipline issued a media statement, stating that the membership of Ahmad Jawad has been ended for repeatedly maligning the senior leadership.
It read that the committee had received complaints from MNA Ali Zaidi, Qaiser Jahangir, Saiqa Tabassum and Shahid Naseem alleging that Ahmad Jawad was repeatedly slandering party’s leadership including PTI chairman Imran Khan on social, electronic and print media.
He had been served two show-cause notices on January 12 and 19 respectively. Jawad had responded to the notices on January 21 but ‘he did not explain his position rather admitted that he had issued more than forty (40) tweets while SCAD had taken notice of only two of his tweets,’ it read.
Following his reply, the discipline committee ended Ahmad Jawad’s membership over the violation of the party’s constitution.
