Three senators and tow MNA's belonging to the Fata region joined the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf party on Saturday, read a statement issued by the PTI’s central media department.
Senator Aurangzeb Khan, Senator Sajjad Hussain Turi and Senator Mirza Mohammad Afridi met Prime Minister Imran Khan at his Banigala residence and expressed their confidence in PTI’s manifesto and said the party would bring a change in the country.
Two ex MNA's Nasir Khan and Mirza Muhammad Ayiub also met Prime Minister Imran Khan at his Banigala residence and join Pti.
The premier welcomed their decision to join the PTI. Defence Minister Pervez Khattak and Senator Haji Fida were also present during the meetings.
Last month, the disgruntled PML-N leader Zafar Ali Shah had joined the PTI. “I am a politician and have to do politics. My friends suggested me to join PTI and I agreed,” he had said.
