KARACHI: A top leader of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has decided to
join Pakistan People’s Party (PPP).
Nadir Leghari, who had joined PTI in 2010, was elected president of the
party’s Sindh chapter in March 2013 and the chairman of Insaf Professionals Forum-Sindh.
Leghari was part of PML-Q led government in 2002 in which he served as the
provincial minister for irrigation and power till 2007.
He lost his seat to PPP’s candidate Sardar Ahmed Pitafi in 2008 general elections
and did not contest the last general elections held in 2013.
In his recent Tweets, he criticized the government for failing to fully implement
National Action Plan (NAP), demanding PTI to stage a sit-in in this regard.
“PTI should announce a Dharna in case National Action Plan is not implemented
fully. This kind of dharna will be supported by all in Pak,” he wrote.
