Imran decides to stay in Lahore till NA-120 by-poll


LAHORE Sep 11 (TNS): Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan, who is in London for a private visit, has decided to stay in Lahore till NA-120 by-poll after he returns to Pakistan on Sept 14.

The party chairman is reportedly angry with the leadership of Lahore for hosting an unsuccessful rally at Qartaba Chowk on September 8.

The chairman has decided to accelerate the political activities, and will monitor them himself to strengthen his party’s position.

The by-election is scheduled to be held on September 17, and PTI has nominated Dr Yasmeen Rashid as its candidate.

The NA-120 seat fell vacant after former prime minister Nawaz Sharif was disqualified by the Supreme Court in the Panama Papers case.
