PESHAWAR: As the beeline of PTI leaders quitting the party continues, the president of its KP chapter and former chief minister Pervez Khattak stepped down from the position on Thursday.
PTI leader Pervez Khattak made the announcement in a video statement, saying he had taken the decision after “consulting friends”.
Khattak, who was the president of PTI’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa chapter, said he was resigning from the party position, adding he would decide the future course of action after further consulting “friends and party workers”.
He also said “propaganda” being played on television was “not right” and he had taken the decision after careful consideration.
Another party leader Asad Qaiser was also briefly seen in the video but did not speak. Prior to his announcement, PTI General Secretary Omar Ayub had alleged in a tweet that Khattak, along with another party leader Asad Qaiser, had been detained.
