PESHAWAR: PTI has filed a plea in Peshawar High Court against a ban on election campaigns imposed on the party.
The plea was filed by PTI’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa president Ali Amin Gandapur and other party representatives in court. The plea was filed against the provincial government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, IG police, and some others.
They plead that district administration and police are not allowing PTI contestants in election campaigns, they are creating hurdles for the PTI. The provincial government and police are not providing space for the members to take part in election campaigns. Other political parties are allowed to contest in election campaigns.
The council of the PTI further added that their party ex-members and workers are being harassed by police. In the Karak district of KPK, the police have bombarded shells on the worker’s convention and arrested workers of the party, where ANP was allowed to carry out their political rally and on the other hand PTI’s rally was sabotaged by the police on the same day.
The council has requested the court that PTI is a big party in Pakistan and is barred from participating in political rallies or conventions, the court should lift the ban and let PTI take part in the election campaigns peacefully.
