Former Sindh CM Liaquat Ali Jatoi joins PTI


Former Sindh Chief Minister Liaquat Ali Jatoi on Thursday announced his decision to join Imran Khan led Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).

The leader of Awami Ittehad Party met PTI chairman Imran Khan and Jahangir Tareen in Bani Gala earlier today.

“Liaquat Jatoi has held meeting today with Imran Khan in Bani Gala and joined PTI,” confirmed Dawa Khan Sabir, a PTI Sindh leader.

The veteran politician had announced the revival of his Awami Ittehad Party in 2014 after his estrangement with the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz.

At the time, Jatoi had claimed that he could either join Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) or any other party before he revived his own party.

Previously, he had also endorsed the demands of PTI  advising Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to resign for the sake of a transparent election investigation but he never joined the party.

Last year, a prominent lawyer and popular television host Naeem Bokhari joined PTI, while four members of PML-N joined PTI ranks in February 2017.
