The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Core Committee has decided not to return to National Assembly.
Insiders said that the PTI Core Committee, which met in Peshawar on Monday with Imran Khan in the chair, was divided on the question to take back resignations.
Former ruling party’s 131 members of National Assembly en masse resigned when Shehbaz Sharif took oath of prime minister’s office.
Insiders claimed Aamir Dogar and Ali Mohammad Khan suggested to returning to the National Assembly.
Ali Mohammad was also in favour of remaining part of the standing committees of the National Assembly, they added.
However, Imran Khan and former planning minister Asad Umar opposed the idea. Chairman Imran was of the view that thousands of people came out in support of PTI long march and he would not disappoint them by sitting with “thieves” in assembly.
Insiders said that the committee also decided not to leave election field empty for their political opponents and decided to participate in the by-election at all cost.
