Muhammad Asif alias DJ Butt, who has been employed to provide sound facility in rallies lad by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), claimed on Monday that Rs 60 millions are due on the party.
‘My total payment for playing music at the PTI sit-ins was Rs110 million but I have only been paid Rs50 million so far,’ DJ Butt said, while speaking to media.
‘I will go to court if my payment is withheld,’ he said adding the party still owes him Rs50 million.
He also said that his daily charges was Rs0.6 million.
On the other hand, PTI leader Naeemul Haque said the party is managing his dues and will resolve the issue very soon.
PTI had led ‘long-march’ against the alleged rigging by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) in the general elections 2013. During all those rallies and sit-ins, the tasks of sound management was entrusted to DJ Butt who was employed against heavy pay.
PTI had ended its one of the longest sit-ins in the history of Pakistan at 126th day after a lethal terrorist attack on army public school in Peshawar leaving more than 150 dead including teachers and children.
Meanwhile, PTI has been under hot water as number of controversies have risen against the party. And now, this one is another blow on the reputation of the party and its chairman.
