‘Don’t compare PTI to PPP’

ISLAMABAD: Minister of State for Poverty Alleviation and Social Safety Faisal Karim Kundi on Monday took a swipe at Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Asad Umar for comparing his party with the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP).
Hitting out at Mr Umar, Mr Kundi said, “No one has faced trials and tribulations like former prime minister Benazir Bhutto and Begum Nusrat Bhutto”. He also berated PTI Chairman Imran Khan, saying, “Imran Khan is afraid of arrest”.
Mr Kundi heaped praise on the PPP workers, saying, “The PPP’s workers are valiant because its leadership is brave. After only two days in jail, Asad Umar has relinquished his posts,” said Mr Kundi.
Earlier today, Mr Umar said that staying with or leaving the party does not make any difference to its vote bank.
Speaking to media outside the Islamabad High Court (IHC), Mr Umar said, “ You know that the PTI’s vote belongs to Imran Khan”. –Agencies
