Veteran Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Shaukat Basra on Thursday called on Prime Minister Imran Khan and announced to join the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI). PTI leader Jahangir Khan Tareen, who had invited former member of the Punjab Assembly Shaukat Basra to join the ruling party, was also present on this occasion. Earlier in August, three leaders of the PPP joined the PTI in Karachi. PTI Karachi president Firdous Shamim Naqvi had announced that three important personalities, including Haji Muzaffar Shajra, Abdul Qadir Baloch and former deputy speaker Sindh Assembly Abdul Bari Jilani from Malir had joined the PTI. “Haji Muzaffar Shajra is an honest and benign human being. Whoever joins the PTI, he comes with the determination of building ‘Naya Pakistan’,” Firdous Naqvi said. Published in Daily Times, December 14th 2018.
