PTI seeks  choices in Punjab and KP within 90 days.  Party says a  detention in  pates will be unconstitutional.  PTI also laments" terrorist- suchlike" treatment of Fawad.  Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf( PTI) Chairman Imran Khan will  dispute for all 33 seats in the  forthcoming National Assembly by-  choices set to take place on March 16, the party has  blazoned —  getting the first person in the country's history to run for a sizeable number of seats.   

In a press conference after the party's core commission meeting in Lahore on Sunday, PTIVice-Chairman Shah Mahmood Qureshi said" Imran Khan will be PTI's  seeker for all constituencies that( are over for heists) and our( ex-) MNAs, who were  before  tagged for those seats will be covering  campaigners."   

The move will  probably pile up pressure on the ruling coalition and  plump  PTI's fashionability if Khan successfully wins a  maturity of the seats and it might dent the government's fashionability, which is  formerly down, giving the Khan- led party an edge in the Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa  choices — anticipated to take place in the coming three months.  The embattled government is under severe  review from the  millions as affectation is at a record high and there seems no respite in sight, with the International Monetary Fund( IMF) programme also at a cube.   

The NA seats had fallen vacant  before this month when NA Speaker Raja Pervaiz Ashraf accepted the adoptions of PTI lawgivers and Awami Muslim League( AML) Chief Sheikh Rashid.   

The PTI  abnegated en masse in April last time after the ouster of Imran Khan as the  high minister, but only 11 adoptions were accepted in July. latterly, as the party tried to carry a comeback to the house, the speaker began accepting their adoptions and in a couple of days, he accepted 113  further, including the 33.   

In October last time, the former  high minister also set a record when he won six NA seats for the PTI in a by- election that was seen as a direct contest between the former ruling party and the current ruling coalition of the Pakistan Democratic Movement's( PDM) parties, which also  seized two seats.  " The PTI'll remain on the political ground and seek the help of the  millions. When the people got a chance in July last time, despite our opponents being in government, they assured our accreditation and( made) Imran Khan victorious," Qureshi said.  

" The nation will give a clear communication on March 16 the nation  fully trusts in the leadership of Imran Khan and it stands with the PTI. The people will also  state their reservations against the group that is been assessed on us," he added.  Delay' in Punjab, KP  pates  venting  enterprises over the"  detention" in Punjab and KP  choices, the PTI vice  president said that the governors of both  businesses would be defying the Constitution if they don't issue a date for the  pates.  

" The Constitution doesn't permit for an hour's  detention and we will not stand it. The  choices should be assured within 90 days in line with the Constitution," he said.   The former foreign minister said that the ruling coalition in the centre is"  hysterical " of holding  choices in both  businesses." Political engineering is being done through the National Assembly by-  choices."   

maturity of experts have said that there's no space in the Constitution that allows the government to delay the  choices, except for  exigency situations,  still former Election Commission of Pakistan( ECP) clerk Kanwar Dilshad has another opinion.   Dilshad has said the authority to  give the ECP with a date for the  choices lay with the governor — and both the top  officers in Punjab and KP were yet to do it. He also maintained that if the governors did not  give a date, it would not be a violation of the Constitution.   

Terrorist- like treatment'  PTI Secretary General Assad Umar said that the party leadership wants to draw the attention of President Arif Alvi towards the growing intervention of security agencies.  " The PTI leadership also stresses the  chairman to take notice of the violations of  mortal rights."   

Qureshi also added that the party condemns the" false cases" filed against PTI SeniorVice-President Fawad Chaudhry and expects that theex-minister would be released.   He further expressed that the PTI also protests against the" terrorist- suchlike treatment" of the former civil minister.   

“ No  illustration can be  set up about three physical remands in one case. There's no room for spending  further than 90 days and doing so would be a violation of the constitution, ” he remarked.   For her part, Fawad's  woman

said" Fawad was wrapped up with a cloth as if he were a terrorist. His daughters weren't allowed to see him."   She also thanked the PTI  president for  harkening to her and appealed to Chief Justice of Pakistan Umar Ata Bandial to take suo motu against the treatment being  allocate out to Fawad.
