JI shows Red Flag to PTI

Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) has rejected the request of Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) for supporting its candidate Yasmin Rashid in the upcoming NA-120 by-polls.

According to sources, PTI had contacted the leadership of JI to get support for its candidate. Despite setting the time for a meeting with the Jamaat-e-Islami Ameer Sirajul Haq, the delegation of PTI did not arrive which angered the Jamaat.

JI leader Ameerul Azeem said that the Jamaat-e-Islami will contest the NA-120 by-polls with full strength. The PTI delegation did not arrive for a meeting with the JI Ameer due to party’s core committee meeting. PTI leader Mian Mehmoodur Rasheed has said that they will contact the JI again.
