PESHAWAR: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) stalwart Noor Alam Khan has decided to party ways with the party and join Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).
The announcement was made in the capital on Tuesday where ex-MNA was accompanied with PTI lawmaker Jehangir Khan Tareen. While media talk, Noor Alam Khan said corrupt people are being preferred in PPP. The formal announcement will be made after a meeting with PTI Chairman Imran Khan.
Noor Alam Khan demanded decentralisation of powers to local body representatives in KP. “Pakistan will progress if Imran Khan becomes Prime Minister,” he added.
The former PPP leader admitted strengthening of institutions in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. At the occasion, Jehangir Tareen and Noor Alam Khan shared their views on current political scenario in the country.
Jehangir Tareen said he is taking Noor Alam to Bani Gala where final decision will be made. He described the former PPP lawmaker as a man who follows ideology and embraced his call.
He was the richest lawmaker of the lower house of the parliament in 2008 and he declared his personal assets worth billions of rupees. PTI Chief Imran Khan has welcomed Noor Alam Khan in the PTI and said many PML-N lawmakers were willing to join the PTI. NNI
