PTI workers enroll for Jail Bharo’ movement

PESHAWAR: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Peshawar chapter started the registration for the ‘Jail Bharo’ movement.
PTI Peshawar region’s president Ishtiaq Armarh had issued directions to the party’s workers and said he would join the workers himself, along with the entire cabinet. He added the party leaders would lead this movement from the front.
According to the provincial secretariat, almost 300 workers got themselves registered in only four hours through calls and messages.
Meanwhile, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) is considering two options for the ‘Jail Bharo’ movement, announced by former prime minister Imran Khan, last week. Sources within the PTI said the party’s senior leadership is considering getting its candidates to surrender for the movement and contest elections from the prison.
The second option being considered by PTI is that the candidates contesting elections avoid surrendering for the movement.
It has been learnt that former prime minister Imran Khan has held a consultation with the senior party leadership on both the options for the movement. Earlier, PTI Chairman Imran Khan asserted that he would soon announce the date for ‘Jail Bharo’ movement, calling on the party workers to be prepared for the movement. In a video message, the former premier warned the government that he would kickstart the movement if elections in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) are not held within 90 days. –Agencies
