KASUR: Former foreign minister Khurshid Mahmood Kasuri announced his decision to join Imran Khan’s Tehrik-i-Insaf on Tuesday, DawnNews reported.
Kasuri, who had parted ways with the PML-Q after developing differences with the Chaudhrys of Gujrat, had been in contact with Khan for over a year.
The PTI chief welcomed Kasuri to the party and congratulated him on his decision.
Talking to the media in Lahore earlier during the day, Khan credited PTI’s success and popularity to the combined failures of the ruling PPP, their coalition partners the PML-Q and the opposition PML-N.
Earlier, PML-N leaders including former federal minister Malik Naeem, ex-MNA Malik Omer Aslam, ex-Chairman of District Council of Khoshab, Malik Mir Mukhtar and ex-District Nazim Malik Ghulam Rasool announced their decision to join PTI. Meanwhile, PML-Q ex-district president Malik Allah Bux, ex-Chairman District Council Faizul Hassan Gilani and others also followed suit.
Moreover, thirty notable PML-Q leaders and Jahangir Khan Tareen of PML-Functional also announced their decision to join Imran Khan's party on Monday.
