They said they had worked for the success of the party candidates in the previous election to work for the wellbeing of the people and not to promote their vested interests.

The PTI leaders said that there was no secretariat of the ruling party in the district.

The said that the local party office-bearers worked to promote their own interests, which was causing a rift among the workers.

The PTI leaders demanded the holding of the intra-party election to strengthen the party at the grassroots and to sideline those with vested interest.

They deplored that the district organisation had been unable to hold a single party meeting in three years.

The PTI leader said that party tickets for the upcoming local government election should be awarded to ideological workers instead of turncoats.
