PESHAWAR: The provincial chapter of Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan’s Tehreek-e-Tahaffuz Pakistan (TTP) announced on Thursday that it would be merging with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).
While addressing a news conference, PTI Provincial General Secretary Khalid Masood said Khan was a national hero and PTI had always considered TTP as a friendly party, adding people were happy with PTI’s performance and thus were becoming part of the party.
He also said PTI has prepared for local government polls and will come up with better results than the general elections.
TTP Provincial General Secretary Arbab Shah Nawaz said manifestos of both parties were the same.
The nuclear scientist, dubbed “father of the bomb”, had launched TTP in 2012 and dissolved it a year later saying he was “unable to run the party’s affairs anymore”.Via: Express Tribune
