PESHAWAR: A PTI parliamentarian has criticized its party for ignoring merit and following cronyism while distributing political positions among its leaders during its previous stint, on Saturday.
PTI leader and member of parliament Usman Khan Tarrakai made big revelations about Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf. He claimed that merit was ignored while distributing political positions during PTI government.
He said instead of granting parliamentary positions on merit, the will of National Assembly speaker Asad Qaiser used to prevail. There were also people who did not study science but they were awarded chairmanship of the field related to science, he added.
Tarkai was giving interview to Mashal Radio.
The PTI leader lamented that despite being a public leader and an engineer, he remained without any position. He claimed that he was the most qualified representative in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa but he was not given any position by the party.
Tarakai said that during PTI regime, the positions in parliament were given on the basis of pick and choose. “Appointing irrelevant persons on political offices remained the biggest failure of the PTI government,” he rued.
