It mentioned that the rebel MNAs neither denied the content of interview nor issued any rebuttal to this ‘act of defection’ and ‘contain a clear intent of leaving the membership of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf.’

The notice reads that all members have an opportunity of hearing before the Head of the Parliamentary Party of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf in the National Assembly and explain as to why a declaration may not be issued.
