Islamabad: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has issued show-cause notice to party leader Sher Afzal Marwat for violation of its code of conduct and policy, Pakistan-based Geo News reported.

The notice, issued by the PTI's central secretariat, stated that Marwat has issued "irresponsible statements" that harmed the PTI's reputation and interests despite being given clear instructions by party founder Imran Khan.

According to the notice, Sher Afzal Marwat has damaged his relations with fellow PTI members and stakeholders through his actions and words.

The PTI's central secretariat has asked Marwat to explain himself in writing within three days of the show-cause notice. He has been asked to explain why disciplinary action should not be taken against him, Geo News reported.

The show-cause notice against the PTI leader reads, "If your reply is unsatisfactory or you do not respond, further action will be taken as per party policy and rules."

Marwat has been grabbing headlines due to his blunt and controversial remarks and has been at loggerheads with several PTI leaders, including Taimur Khan Jhagra, Omar Ayub and Shibli Faraz, Geo News reported.

Earlier on May 9, Omar Ayub said that PTI expelled Marwat from it's core and political committees on the orders issued by Imran Khan. He said that Marwat was warned time and again against violating the PTI's policies.

Ayub said, "The PTI founder said Marwat tried to damage his personal relations with the kingdom [of Saudi Arabia] as he has excellent ties with Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman."

Earlier, PTI has nominated Sheikh Waqas Akram for Marwat's post of National Assembly's Public Accounts Committee (PAC) chairman, as per the Geo News report.

On May 8, it was reported that PTI founder Imran Khan, who is being held in Adiala Jail, had refused to meet with party leader Sher Afzal Marwat due to his "irresponsible behaviour," ARY News reported.

Marwat's remarks about Saudi Arabia's role in toppling the PTI administration and his meeting with Defence Minister Khawaja Asif are what Imran Khan finds offensive, according to ARY News reported citing sources. However, blaming other party leaders, Shibli Faraz and Omar Ayub on Wednesday, PTI's Marwat said that the two hindered his meeting with the PTI founder in jail.

"Jail Superintendent told me that the PTI's founder wants to meet me separately," Marwat said.

"When I come for meeting today, the jail superintendent didn't allow me to meet him," he said, as per the ARY News report. He said, "My meeting with the PTI founder was extremely necessary."

"I am being paid back for my services to the PTI with the complaint of the party's social media team against me," Marwat said. (ANI)
