PTI angered by JI support for PML-N in Jhelum by-poll
JHELUM (92 News) – The Jamaat-e-Islam, an ally of the PTI in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, has announced support for PML-N’s Nawabzada Matloob Mehdi, son of former MNA Nawabzada Iqbal Mehdi (late) in NA-63 by-election.
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf has fielded Chaudhry Fawad Husain, a lawyer-turned-anchor, against Nawabzada Matloob Mehdi.
Reacting to the decision, PTI spokesman Naeemul Haq said that the JI had set a glaring example of hypocrisy.
“The JI has stabbed us in the back by supporting the PML-N in the Jhelum by-poll,” he said.
