PTI to protest on Feb 17 : denies talk with PPP & PTI-P

Gohar unequivocally dismissed media reports suggesting a potential collaboration between PTI and PTI-P in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, affirming the PTI's decision not to engage in such partnerships.

The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has announced nationwide “peaceful” demonstrations in response to alleged electoral tampering during the February 8 general elections, extending invitations to various political parties who share concerns regarding potential manipulation of the election outcomes to join them.

During a press briefing following a meeting with the party’s founder Imran Khan at Adiala jail, former PTI chairman Barrister Gohar Khan encouraged political entities such as Jamaat-e-Islami, Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F), and others, who hold the belief that the recent elections were subject to irregularities, to participate in their scheduled protest on Saturday.

Contrary to circulating rumors, the party has refuted claims of forging an alliance with the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) at the federal level and with the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf-Parliamentarians (PTI-P) in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

No talks with PPP or PTI-P

These developments come amid reports suggesting a potential softening of Imran Khan’s stance towards political adversaries, signaling a willingness to engage in dialogue with both the PPP and the splinter faction led by Parvez Khattak. However, PTI sources have clarified that Imran Khan, currently detained at Adiala jail, has strictly advised against any negotiations with the PPP and the PML-N, urging instead for oppositional positioning.

Dismissing speculations regarding a PTI-PPP coalition for government formation, PTI leader Barrister Muhammad Ali Saif emphasized Khan’s directive to refrain from aligning with either the PPP or the PML-N, insisting on maintaining an oppositional stance.

Following a subsequent meeting with Khan in Rawalpindi, Barrister Gohar and Sher Afzal Marwat reiterated the PTI’s rejection of power-sharing arrangements with the PPP or the PML-N, emphasizing Khan’s firm stance against such alliances.

Furthermore, Gohar unequivocally dismissed media reports suggesting a potential collaboration between PTI and PTI-P in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, affirming the PTI’s decision not to engage in such partnerships.
