“I was never and am not now interested in any party position. I will continue to serve PTI as a worker and strive for party’s unity,” Tareen said in a statement.

“I was never and am not now interested in any party position. I will continue to serve PTI as a worker and strive for Party Unity,” he said.

He said that he burnt his boats and joined PTI to follow Imran Khan’s ideology.

“I cannot stand by and watch PTI divided and especially at this critical juncture. I call upon the entire party hierarchy to play their role in uniting PTI. We need to focus our energies on exposing the Sharifs,” he added.
