Come join us, Imran Khan asks Mian Azhar


Former Punjab governor and Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) president Mian Azhar has decided to join the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI), after being invited by PTI Chairman Imran Khan, and will make a formal announcement on October 5, PTI sources claimed on Wednesday.
He has given a positive response to the PTI chairman and said that he along with his loyalists will join the revolutionary political party. During a meeting with Imran at his Garden Town residence, Azhar, who was a veteran Muslim Leaguer and had good connections with politicians, assured the PTI chairman that he would try to strengthen his voice against corruption and incompetent politicians.
PTI Punjab President Ahsan Rashid and PTI Lahore President Mahmood Rashid, who accompanied Imran to Azhar’s house, termed the former governor’s possible joining of the PTI as a good omen. They believed that Azhar had a good position in the politics of Central and South Punjab. Mahmood told Pakistan Today that Azhar expressed full confidence on Imran’s leadership and political vision of the PTI during the half-hour long meeting.
The former governor praised Imran’s struggle for social service in form of a cancer hospital and his campaign against corruption in politics. He assured full support to the PTI chairman in his noble work, adding that it was the moral duty of every Pakistani to support the truth.
Mahmood said the party had achieved political strength and was getting more and more acceptance from national political figures. He predicted that more national level leaders will join the PTI in the coming days. Azhar could not be contacted to get confirmation of his joining the PTI.
Separately, Imran inaugurated a new block at Shaukat Khanum Hospital. He said that the US had lost the war in Afghanistan and was now trying its best to make Pakistan a scapegoat. He said that Pakistan had suffered the most in the war on terror and ruled out any resolution to the problem in the Tribal Areas through military means, adding that negotiations was the only remedy.


  1. Imran Khan and his political party PTI needs people like, Mian Azhar in Lahore and Shah Mehmood from Multan, Khakwanis from Khanewal, Sheikh Rasheed from Rawalpindi, Hayat's from Talagang/Attock, Tiwana's/Noons from Sargodha and few others from the Pothwar and Pharee( mountainous ) belts. Imran's popularity is at all time high in the history of Pakistan. One can compare him as a leader like Bhutto, Benazir, Nawaz Sharif. But his party needs preominent figures in Punjab, Sindh, NWFP Khyber, Baluchistan and Kashmir. In Sindh a name comes to mind Makdoom Khaliquz zaman, NWFP, Hoti's and Saifullahs, Sardars from Baluchistan, May be Zafar Jamali and all. PTI can clean sweep the coming elections, since their popularity graph is on the rise. GOOD LUCK IMRAN KHAN & PTI.
