Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Saturday terminated the ‘basic membership’ of Faisal Vawda, according to a notification posted on the party’s official Twitter account.
The notification, signed by Imran Khan, stated that Vawda did not respond to the party’s show cause notice issued on October 26 “for defying party policy” and thus, his membership has been terminated.
Earlier, Vawda appeared on state-owned broadcaster PTV and “tried to damage” the PTI long march to Islamabad by claiming that the march would be “bloody”.
“Imran Khan’s peaceful long march is our right but I am clearly telling you I am seeing blood, deaths and coffins in this march,” he said.
Shortly after the presser, in the show-cause notice issued to Vawda, PTI Sindh President Ali Zaidi told the former minister that he had “grossly violated discipline by giving statements against party policies and guidelines”.
