Multan (Web Desk) Amid a great deal of ‘pressure’ the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf on Sunday withdrew NA-154 ticket it awarded to Sikandar Hayat Bosan a few hours earlier.
Sources said the PTI also gave a go-ahead to Mr Bosan for two provincial assembly seats but withdrew all the tickets within hours.
Earlier, Ahmed Hussain Dehar, another aspirant for NA-154, told newsmen that he would contest as an independent candidate after the PTI awarded ticket to Mr Bosan. The agitated politician said he would dedicate his seat to Imran Khan in case of victory.
Just the a day before Mr Bosan found himself in an embarrassing situation when he had to face a group of rowdy people during canvassing in his constituency. A video of youngsters asking pointed questions to the politician went viral on social media.
Mr Bosan was going for his campaign at Binda Sandila union council when a group of youngsters stopped his vehicle and first chanted slogans against him and then one of them questioned him for “his failure to construct a link road and staying away from the constituency.”
“Come out of your vehicle and inspect the bad condition of road with us,” said one of the youngsters. As Mr Bosan refused to leave his vehicle, one of his associates said “Bhai Jan is not feeling well so do not misbehave with him and he will visit again.”
“Send your representative if you are ill,” witticismed a youngster.
The incident came a few days after Jamal Khan Leghari, the tribal chief of Rounghin Tuman Leghari, had to face a similar situation when a group of youngsters aggressively questioned him about his “prolonged absence” from the constituency.
