ISLAMABAD: (APS)Former governor Punjab Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar on Sunday called on Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan at his house in Bani Gala, APS News reported.
Sources said that the PTI chief appreciated Sarwar’s principal stand and extended an invitation to the former governor to join his party.
Sarwar spoke to Imran Khan about his resignation as Punjab governor during the meeting, which was also attended by PTI General Secretary Jahangir Tareen.
The former governor resigned last month because of what he said was his failure to achieve the goals he had set for himself while assuming the office on Aug 5, 2013.
He had complained about rising crime, helplessness of victims before oppressors and the power of land mafia which he said was “more influential than the governor”.
Sarwar has stated that every third Pakistani is a victim of the land mafia and the government needed to look into this problem.
The former governor has alleged that 95 per cent of the Pakistani people are under the control of 5 per cent of the population.
He has said that he stood for democracy where even a common man’s son could get the same opportunities and rights as those of the elite.
The former governor has also stated that he had no intention of re-applying for British citizenship nor joining Imran Khan’s PTI.
