Fawad Chaudhry draws Imran’s ire over dismal show in Jhelum


Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan is reportedly unhappy with his party’s spokesman Fawad Chaudhry over the dismal public gathering in Jhelum the other day, a private news channel reported on Thursday.

According to the channel, the number of participants in the rally was considerably low due to bickering within the local party ranks. Fawad Chaudhry is the candidate for PTI from NA-67 Jhelum.

TV footage of the rally shows rows of seats lying empty at the venue, whereas, people were present only near the stage.

After the rally, Fawad had said that people of Jhelum weren’t dissatisfied with the PTI. “They had to wait outside the venue,” he further said.

Fawad said that the party organisers of the venue even weren’t able to reach on time, adding that due to security arrangements people faced hurdles in attending the rally.

He still expressed gratitude towards the people of Jhelum for coming to see Imran Khan at Zameer Jafri stadium in such a hot weather.
