ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf ([PTI) leader Faisal Vawda said that he has offered the right advice to his party which is set to launch an anti-government long march on October 28.
Vawda said this reacting to the comment of former minister and PTI Sindh President Ali Zaidi who said Vawda’s press conference was meant to damage the PTI’s long march. “The imported government has launched Faisal Vawda,” Ali Zaid said.
Commenting on Zaidi’s remarks, Faisal Vawda said, “He [Zaidi] is not worth my reaction.” He indicated that a lot will come to the fore if the affairs of the shipping ministry — a ministry led by Zaidi in Imran Khan’s era — are disclosed.
Vawda said that he gave the right advice to his party because some conspirators may target innocent people in the PTI’s peaceful march.
“What did I say in my press conference that is against the party’s policy?” he asked.
Earlier, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Sindh President and former federal minister Ali Zaidi criticised PTI leader Faisal Vawda, saying his press conference holds no significance in the backdrop of the PTI’s long march starting on October 28.
In his press conference on Wednesday, Faisal Vawda had said, “These funerals will definitely be held, but I will try until my dying breath to save my Pakistanis from sacrificing their lives for a conspiracy hatched by some people. I will try to end this politics of death and bloodshed in this country.”
According to a statement, Ali Zaidi termed Faisal Vawda’s press conference as an attempt to damage PTI’s major protest campaign, starting on Friday from Lahore’s Liberty Chowk.
He said that Faisal Vawda was launched by what he called the ‘imported government’ as all news channels, including the state television, telecast his speech – a fact that proves his claim.
Ali Zaidi said that he didn’t understand the purpose of Faisal Vawda’s press conference, given the fact that Imran Khan has issued unambiguous instructions to all workers to remain peaceful.
After Imran Khan’s clear-cut instructions, Faisal Vawda’s press conference has no value, he added.
According to Vawda, many people will die in the long march to Islamabad, adding that there are “ulterior motives” behind the march.
