SWABI - MPA Babar Khan yesterday said that he will fight legally under rules and regulations if Tarakai House poses any threat to his representation.

He said this in a reaction to Awami Jamhoori Ittehad Pakistan (AJIP) leadership’s decision to cancel/terminate his party membership. He said that he is the elected representative of thousands people.

Son of late Dr Muhammad Salim, (founder of Swabi Qaumi Mahaz), Babar was elected as MPA from PK-31 in 2013 general elections. Addressing a press conference at his residence he said that instead of cancelling/terminating his membership, the AJIP leaders should first give show cause notice to Liaqat Khan Tarakai, founder of AJIP and father of provincial senior minister, Shahram Khan Tarakai.

“Liaqat Tarakai is founder of the party and he had been elected senator on Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf’s ticket instead of AJIP. He violated the party rules,” he said.

He admitted that he was elected on AJIP’s ticket but he never violated the party discipline and only fought for the right of his constituency.

Answering a question, he said that AJIP leadership had already decided to merge in PTI and it was expected that PTI’s Chairman Imran Khan would visit Tarakai House very soon. “It would not only mark the merging of AJIP in PTI but also end of the former,” he said.

However, he lamented that AJIP leadership had bypassed him in various issues while intentionally deprived the people of his constituency from the required development fund and other facilities.

In reply to a question he said that he did not bother to reply the show cause notice because it was sent to him through one of the manager of the Tarakai company.

He unveiled the entire detail that how his relations with Tarakai House deteriorated and how he was forced to adopt a new line of action.

“The Tarakai House had ignored me completely and if anyone has any doubt he should check the record,” he said.

Babar challenged Provincial Health Minister Shahram Khan Tarakai to hold a live debate on TV channels to prove that whether he was wrong or the AJIP leadership.
