HISTORY IN THE MAKING AS PTI ELECTS A TAILOR AS
ITS PRESIDENT OF KOHAT DISTT
PTI voters smash status-quo, traditional hold of affluent on politics
New chapter of political transformation takes place
ISLAMABAD, Jan 30: A new chapter of political transformation has taken place in the country’s history as a peasant has been elected as district president of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), Kohat in the party’s intra-party polls held on Tuesday in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
Humayon Khan is a tailor by profession, who had dared to challenge the traditional status-quo and the hold of rich and influential families over political offices.
However, his dream of winning the polls came true – thanks to a fair and equal chance provided to the common workers by the party’s chairman Imran Khan in the intra-party polls.
This has also proved that the slogan of bringing about a revolutionary change in the country through political transformation by Imran Khan is true in nature as a son of peasant has been elected by PTI’s ideological workers, smashing the traditional hold of feudal, affluent and industrialists on the party leaderships.
“A new era of change has dawned, as I have been elected to the district’s highest office. I am a daily wage earning only over a hundred rupees but I have been elected as the PTI District Kohat President in the recently held intra-party elections,” said Humayon Khan.
The Party Chairman Imran Khan, PTI President Makhdoom Javed Hashmi, Vice Chairman Shah Mahmood Qureshi and other parties’ senior leadership congratulated Humayon on his victory, stating that he was not alone in the party and many peasants and labourers are being elected.
The election of Humayun Chacha as the PTI President Kohat is a good omen, which is widely seeing a step towards the right direction of a change.
Humayun’s election has taken the status quo parties by surprise, as it never happened in the history of the country that a man from the unprivileged class became a district president of any major party, but what the PTI has kept on saying prove true.
The PTI has strongly believed in transpiring of power to the grass root level and wants an end to the vicious cycle of dynastic politics and the election of Humayon has proved the claim true.
The PTI is not mere believe in slogan of a change like rest of the parties of the country, but it has proved that it is the real voice of the masses, in which even an ordinary man can become a chairman of the party.
The news of Humayun’s becoming the PTI president has spread in the country like a wild fire, as it rare happens in feudal and dynastic political system that a son of peasant could win over against strong and wealthiest opponents, hoping that his election would not only help break the shackles of family-hold politics, but would also help lead towards the real change.
