Khurram Nawaz announced his decision to quit the PTI during a press conference in Islamabad on Saturday. He said that the entire team of NA-52 is with him.
He said that he and his companions are currently quitting politics and resigning from the PTI posts. However, we will make a plan of action later whether to do politics or not, he added.
He said that he found Imran Khan Sahib to be a very good leader.
Khurram Nawaz said that he and his team condemn the May 9 incidents and violent attacks on the monuments of martyrs. He demanded a transparent investigation into it, and called for an action against those who are involved in it. He said that those who are not involved and are in jail, should be released.
He further said, “There is no case or pressure on me. There is no video of me. Whenever there will be positive politics in the country, we can do politics too. There should not be any confrontation with the state institutions. My mother is on death bed. I am the only son of my parents, now I have to serve them.”
