“Istifa Do’ (tender resignation) movement turns into ‘Istifa lo’ & ‘Chandaa do’ (take resignation & donate) movement. Vagaries of fate …”, said she in a post that appeared on her Twitter account timeline.
Part of her tweet could be explained as a satire on PTI’s bleak financial situation, which has forced the Imran Khan led political party to openly appeal to the people to donate as much as they can so that funds could be raised to meet the expenses of sit-ins and rallies could be funded.
Analysts say the party funds are running dangerously low…thus cash-strapped PTI is resorting to crowdfunding.
On the face of it, the other part is a cutting irony on PTI’s internal conflicts especially regarding party members’ resignations.
Earlier in the day, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) cancelled the membership of Javed Naseem for chanting ‘Go Kahttak Go’ slogan in his press conference against Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Chief Minister (CM) Pervaiz Khattak.
It must be mentioned that on top of challenging the authority of CM Khattak, he had also accused him of rampant corruption and nepotism.
On the other hand, taking an exception to senior party leader Azam Swati’s decision, Naseem said, ” I am not answerable to anyone except for Imran Khan and/or the elected president of the party.”
Naseem told Samaa that no one could expel him from the party as he was Imran Khan’s soldier.
