Imran spoke to the party workers while touring different areas of the city for the party’s membership drive yesterday.
Abbasi took a jibe at the PTI Chairman by saying that, ‘yesterday a stranger visited the city’, adding that after a span of five years Imran was touring the streets of Rawalpindi.
“Noone welcomed Imran, no one even invited for tea,” he said.
In the general elections 2013, PTI Chairman Imran Khan won the National Assembly seat from NA-56, Rawalpindi, against Hanif Abbasi. The PTI chief bagged 80,425 votes while his opponent, PML-N’s Abbasi got only 67,167 votes.
Imran withdrew from NA-1 Peshawar and NA-71 Mianwali and took an oath of parliament from the NA-56 Rawalpindi seat.
