Firdous Ashiq Awan joins PTI


ISLAMABAD, MAY 17, (DNA) – Dr. Firdous Ashiq Awan, former Minister of Information and Broadcasting and a prominent PPP leader, has decided to join Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).

She announced that she’s be joining PTI on Tuesday. She will represent the party from her constituency NA-111 which is next to that of the Defence Minister and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (N) leader Khawaja Asif as both belong from Sialkot.

Firdous Ashiq met PTI’s Umar Dar, Khawaja Asif competitor in NA-110, and agreed to leave PPP, according to reports. She has expressed full confidence in the leadership of PTI Chairman Imran Khan.

Earlier this month, PTI managed to grab another PML-N leader Chaudhry Akhlaq who used to be a close aide of Khawaja Asif in the same city.

The newly-made PTI leader will announce her formal entry into the party upon meeting Imran Khan. While talking to the media, she said she’d accept any decision made by the party leadership about ticket distribution.

Umar Dar believes that the inclusion of former PPP leader and state minister would further strengthen PTI in Sialkot.=DNA
