Imran Khan’s confusions  

Sir: I simply cannot understand how Imran Khan’s mind works. He says Nawaz Sharif is not willing to resign from the National Assembly (NA) because of the commissions he gets from development projects. If this is true then why have PTI party members not resigned from the KP Assembly yet? Is it because they do not want to lose the benefits and perks they are enjoying? His ally in the KP Assembly, the Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) has asked the NA Speaker not to accept Khan’s and his party members’ resignations, while he insists that the resignations be accepted. Just what exactly is going on? Why is he not allowing his members to go individually to the Speaker and present their resignations? Is it because he knows that they will retract and tell the Speaker that they are being forced to resign? Even after resigning, PTI members are continuing to use the perks and privileges granted to them as MNAs. Should they not return the benefits they have taken from the Assembly?
