KARACHI: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Karachi division president Najmi Alam has made startling revelations about Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) withdrawn candidate in NA-245 by-election, Amjadullah Khan.

Alam, while talking to the media said that Amjadullah had visited him on Wednesday, a day before polling in NA-245 by-election and offered to withdraw his candidacy in favour of PPP for money.

However, he added that Amjadullah’s immoral offer was denied.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf suffered a major setback in Karachi’s NA-245 by-elections late Wednesday night as party’s nominee Amjadullah Khan announced his withdrawal from the election in favour of Muttahida Qaumi Movement’s (MQM) candidate Kamal Malik a few hours before polling began.

Khan announced his withdrawal during a late night press conference at Nine Zero.

Khan presented a list of grievances that he had with PTI. He stated that the local leadership had neither offered support nor any cooperation in the election.
