DERA ISMAIL KHAN: Differences have surfaced between Federal Minister Sardar Ali Amin Gandapur and PTI MNA Yaqub Shaikh.
Addressing a press conference here the other day, Mr Shaikh alleged that Mr Gandapur was unnecessarily interfering in his constituency. He also showed reservations about the inclusion of Khalid Saleem Ustrana in the party. He said that Mr Ustrana, who recently joined PTI through Mr Gandapur, had come forth in the last elections.
“He can’t even become a village nazim,” Mr Shaikh said in apparent reference to Mr Ustrana. “Corruption is at peak in Dera Ismail Khan. My brother was in the hospital for 16 hours and there was no doctor,” he claimed.
Meanwhile, Mr Ustrana alleged that MNA Yaqub Shaikh from NA-39 was an incompetent politician whose incompetency was causing severe political damage to Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf in Dera Ismail Khan. “The stories of his incompetence are common,” he added.
