PPP leader Raja Riaz decides to join PTI


LAHORE: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Rajz Riaz Ahmed has decided to join Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).


The formal announcement will be made in PTI’s Faisal rally on May 20.

Sources said all the issues pertaining to joining PTI have been settled in a meeting with PTI Chief Imran Khan.

Sources said Raja Riaz was angry with PPP leadership. A few days back he had claimed that some party stalwarts were trying to push him against the wall.

He went on to say that despite Asif Ali Zardari’s intervention matters could not be resolved swiftly, therefore he has decided to join Imran Khan’s party.

Riaz had also requested for meeting with PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto but could not get time from him.
