PTI is reluctant to include former governor Ghulam Mustafa Khar

The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) is reluctant to include former governor Ghulam Mustafa Khar in the team, unless he exhibits a major show of power to showcase his popularity in south Punjab. However, arranging a grand session is a difficult task of for Khar, Pakistan Today learnt on Saturday. According to sources, negotiations between Khar and the PTI chairman were underway and a formal announcement is expectedly after 10th of Muharram. But the PTI is expecting Khar to arrange a grand session to announce his affiliation with the PTI, but Khar is hesitant to announce the same as it is difficult for him to gather a large number of people in the session.
Sources said some elements from Khar’s side met PTI Punjab office-bearers and sought time for the meeting from PTI Chairman Imran Khan after the 10th of Muharram. Still the PTI wants Khar to hold a massive rally in Muzzafargarh to show his worth and assure PTI opponents that they are set to reduce the hegemony of both the PML-N and the PPP. PTI General Secretary Dr Arif Alvi said he was not aware of the developments in connection with Khar’s status, but according to another party leader, PTI senior leaders were not taking much interest regarding the inclusion of Khar in the PTI. According to another source, Khar wanted to announce his affiliation with the PTI in a press conference, but the PTI chairman Imran expected a show of power from Khar, like the one from Shah Mehmood Qureshi.
