PTI Lahore leader Sheikh Imtiaz dismisses Parvez Elahi’s claim about next CM Punjab

On Sunday, a Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader dismissed the claims that, should the party win the Punjab Assembly elections, PTI president Chaudhry Parvez Elahi or his son will take over as chief minister.

PTI Lahore leader Sheikh Imtiaz told media that if there had been any conversation, it was between Imran Khan, the chairman of the PTI, and Chaudhry Parvez Elahi. At our party’s meetings, “this issue has not at all been discussed,” he continued.

In an interview with a news website on Saturday, Parvez Elahi said that Imran Khan had pledged to appoint either him or Moonis Elahi as chief minister should the party win the election.

“I never heard anything about Imran Khan’s promise to Parvez Elahi about the chief minister’s slot,” Sheikh Imtiaz claimed to have heard during a party meeting for the allocation of tickets for Lahore seats.

There hasn’t been any talk about the CM job up to this point, he insisted, because the campaign’s major objective is to increase pressure on the government to conduct elections in Punjab on May 14.

According to Imtiaz, PTI has provided tickets to every contender whose name had been accepted.
