Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Sher Afzal Marwat Monday said he was ready to withdraw his candidature for Public Accounts Committee chairmanship if another party member expresses interest in the post.

Talking to the media outside the Parliament House, Marwat revealed that he had recently discussed the matter of the PAC with PTI Chairman Imran Khan.

Marwat touched upon Khan's advice regarding handling provocations from within the PTI ranks, emphasizing the importance of ignoring such distractions to maintain one's dignity.

Highlighting recent political developments, Marwat voiced his support for Ali Amin Gandapur's statement.

Reflecting on the challenges faced by PTI, Marwat lamented the loss of their mandate, citing instances of alleged electoral misconduct and subsequent repercussions for the party and its workers.

Marwat also raised concerns about the handling of diplomatic affairs, referencing former Finance Minister Ishaq Dar's purported statements on trade with India and his subsequent engagements abroad.

He said Dar’s statement is an attempt to give support to the Modi government in India’s elections.

He said it was not a dozen eggs that were stolen but it was people’s mandate on the 85 NA seats that was stoles. He said they would arrange several million marches and sit-ins but it would come at the last stage of the party’s movement.

He said PTI suffered the most due to the May 9 incidents as their workers were arrested and martyred and hell was sent loose upon the party.

He said the government has the worst track record for human rights as evident from this year's United States report.

He criticized the performance of the current government, drawing attention to economic setbacks, including a significant decrease in remittances and losses in various sectors such as textile and agriculture.

He said the remittances have been downed by $8billion annually while textile exports suffered a decline of $6billion. He said there was a loss of $1b in wheat procurement and now the government was accusing the bureaucracy for that.
