Imran had appealed to the citizens of Karachi to come forward in the upcoming elections for the sake of their children.

It should also be mentioned here that Dr Liaquat widely criticised PTI in the recent past both in his media talks as well as television programmes.This is not the first time that PTI has announced to formally launch Dr Liaquat as its member. Faisal Javed Khan, Member of the Senate since March 2018, belonging to PTI, had announced on Twitter in October 2017 that Dr Liaquat would join the front later that month.

However a press conference that was addressed by PTI leaders on the due date, October 25, was not attended by Dr Liaquat.
