ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf is still in quandary as the former opposition leader in Punjab Assembly Mehmood-ur-Rasheed suggested name of Orya Maqbool Jan along with Hassan Askari and Yaqoob Izar for the post of caretaker chief minister on Friday.
Surprisingly, PTI’s spokesman Fawad Chaudhry was on a different page, as he did not mention name of Orya Maqbool Jan in his tweet.
He instead proposed the name of Ayaz Amir along with Hassan Askari and Yaqoob Azhar for the caretaker CM.
PTI has proposed three names to be appointed as Caretaker Punjab CM. 1) Hassan Askari 2) Ayaz Amir 3) Yaqub Izhar… agreement on one name is expected by tomorrow evening

PTI is being lashed out by media, political opponents for retracting Nasir Khosa name as the interim CM Punjab.
Following social media fury over the decision, the party had to take off the name of Nasir Khosa, as the latter was accused by PTI fans for having connectivity with Sharif family.
However, PTI maintained that they respect the credibility of Nasir Khosa.
Nasir Khosa, on Thursday himself excused from assuming the post of caretaker CM.
