PkMAP secretary general Mukhtar Khan Yousafzai expelled from party
Pashtunkhwa Milli Awami Party (PkMAP) chief Mehmood Khan Achakzai expelled Secretary General Mukhtar Khan Yousafzai and many other senior officials from the central and provincial office of the party for violating its constitution and using powers they were prohibited from exercising.
It was the second initiative of the Chairman of the PkMAP in the last month as he had expelled the party’s central information secretary Raza Mohammad Raza and Obsidullah Babit for allegedly creating their own group or for joining another side.
Mr. Achakzai said in a statement here on Sunday that there are other public office holders among them provincial president Khursheed Ali Khan, First Vice-President Haider Khan Momand, provincial undersecretary Umar Ali Yousafzai and deputy secretaries Ashraf Hoti and Ahmed Shah Khan were also expelled from the party.
“They have nothing to do with November 19, 2022, PkMAP,” the press release added.
Mr. Achakzai alleged that these office bearers had contributed to misunderstandings between party members and supporters in various districts and that they were even working to establish their separate parties. They continually worked against the party’s interests and its constitution, he said, adding that the upper members confirmed their anti-party activities to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
He said the expelled secretary general was also not implementing the decisions taken in the party’s high-level forums such as the national congress and the national jirga. He also sabotaged efforts to re-organize the party’s student wing, Achakzai said.
He did so knowing that the central executive committee had been dissolved at the national congress, Mukhtar Yousafzai convened a meeting of the committee via Facebook when it was already decided that social media would not be used for party business.
