The leader of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), Imran Khan, has conceded to the presence of internal divisions within his political party prior to a crucial meeting with both party factions scheduled to take place at Adiala Jail. This admission was made in light of recent developments within the party, as reported by the sources on Wednesday.

While Khan did acknowledge the existence of fractures within the party, he dismissed allegations of a “forward bloc” during his interaction with reporters inside a courtroom. The emergence of dissenting voices and public criticism among PTI leaders has lent credence to speculations of internal discord.

In a notable development last month, PTI’s Secretary-General, Omar Ayub, tendered his resignation, citing the need to concentrate on his role as the National Assembly Opposition Leader. The decision to step down occurred in the midst of a situation whereby certain 27 PTI leaders were contemplating resigning from the National Assembly as a protest against the current PTI leadership, specifically for their perceived inaction in securing Khan’s release from jail. Notably, Ayub’s resignation was not accepted by PTI’s parliamentary party despite the internal turmoil.

According to a report by Geo News, a significant number, 21 out of 27 leaders, have hinted at the possibility of forming a forward bloc within the party. The evolving dynamics within PTI are raising concerns about the unity and stability of the party as it grapples with internal dissent and growing factionalism.
