KARACHI: Television anchor person Dr Aamir Liaquat Hussain has formally announced to join Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf.

Aamir Liaquat made this announcement during a press conference here on Monday. PTI Chairman Imran Khan, party leader Ismail and other PTI leaders were also present.

Speaking on the occasion, Aamir Liaquat claimed PTI will clean sweep polls in the Karachi in the upcoming general elections.

Imran Khan welcomed Aamir Liaquat Hussain in the party, saying people of Karachi should give PTI a chance to return its charm.

On the occasion, veteran film and TV artist Abid Ali also announced to join PTI.

On Sunday, party workers expressed intense disapproval regarding Aamir Liaquat’s decision of joining the party, causing pandemonium during party chief Imran Khan's address.

As a result Imran Khan was not able to make his speech during the public in Karachi.

Due to this, Imran Khan was forced to leave mid-way.

It may be noted here that law enforcement agencies launched action against MQM leader and workers following anti-state remarks by MQM founder on August 22, 2016. Dr Farooq Sattar, Aamir Liaquat Hussain and other leaders were also taken into custody by Rangers.

The very next day on August 23, Amir Liaquat Hussain announced to quit politics, saying “I am not part of MQM from today and I am leaving the party.” “I am also quitting Pakistani politics,” he had added.

“Pakistan is everything for me, whatever I am today it is all because of Pakistan,” Amir Liaquat had remarked.
