Former Punjab chief minister Parvez Elahi Tuesday announced to merge Pakistan Muslim League (Q) into Pakistan Thereek-e-Insaf (PTI), reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
The move came hours after PML-Q president Ch Shujaat Hussain removed Elahi from the party.
After a meeting with PTI chairman Imran Khan, Ch Parvez Elahi along with his 10 former Punjab MPAs announced joining the PTI.
Former Punjab MPAs Hafiz Amar Yasir, Shujaat Nawaz, Abdullah Yusuf Waraich, Bao Rizwan, Sajid Bhatti, Ehsanul Haq, Muhammad Afzal, Basma Chaudhry and Khadija Umar Farooqui also participated in the meeting.
Musa Elahi, Chaudhry Maqsood Sulahria, Khurram Manwar Manj and Haji Umar Habib were also part of the meeting.
Addressing the media alongside Fawad Chaudhary, Ch Parvez said they have great regard for PTI and its chairman Imran Khan and would stand by him forever.
He said he and his former MPAs stand by Imran Khan in every difficult time.
“We will do everything that will benefit the country and nation and there will be no work that will harm the party.”
He said he had delivered for the country and the province while Shehbaz Sharif had not done any work that will benefit the people.
Welcoming Parvez Elahi, Fawad Chaudhry said Chaudhry Parvez Elahi has left Q-League today and became a part of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf.
“Inshallah Parvez Elahi Sahib will play his role in the struggle of Naya Pakistan, we will never forget his sacrifices and support.”
