MANSEHRA: Former Member of National Assembly (MNA) Nawabzada Salahuddeen Saeed quit Awami National Party (ANP) and announced joining Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).

 

Talking to reporters at Oghi on Wednesday, Salahuddeen said he met PTI chief Imran Khan in Islamabad and made the announcement.

 

He said the ANP couldn’t honour the pledges made to the people of the Hazara division, particularly the residents of Tanawal, which was his native constituency.

 

The former lawmaker, who was elected MNA four times from NA-21, said that if his party allotted him ticket he would contest the election from the same constituency.

 

He said former chief minister Ameer Haider Hoti had announced to give Tanawal the status of district, but could not materialise the announcement.

 

Former Member of Provincial Assembly (MPA) Habibur Rehman Tanoli, who had joined ANP, was contesting the coming general elections as an independent candidate. According to his family sources, he refused to get the ANP ticket when the party contacted him.
