ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: More former lawmakers from Faisalabad, Chiniot, Pakpattan, Toba Tek Singh and Gujranwala have formally joined Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).
In a statement issued on Thursday, the PTI Central Media Department said that the former lawmakers met the PTI Chairman Imran Khan in Islamabad today and expressed complete trust on PTI’s manifesto and its leadership.
The PTI Central Media Department said that those who joined PTI today included former members of the National assembly from Faisalabad Shahid Khalil and Rai Ejaz Kharal, former member of the Punjab assembly from Chiniot Qazi Ali Hassan, former member of the Punjab assembly from Toba Tek Singh Liaquat Ali Shaukat, and former Tehsil Nazim (Pakpattan) Farrukh Mumtaz Monika.
Likewise, member of the Punjab assembly from Gujranwala Rizwan Aslam Butt along with his companions also joined PTI.
Meanwhile in a statement, the PTI Central Secretary Information Fawad Chaudhry said that the former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif would compete against Shahbaz Sharif and Hamza Shahbaz in next general elections rather than against PTI and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP).
Fawad Chaudhry said that Nawaz Sharif has become confused and bewildered as he knows that he will soon be brought to justice. He said that wherever Nawaz Sharif goes, he talks about hidden hands behind his ouster but he never reveals anything.
