Peshawar (April 11, 2018): Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) MNA Siraj Muhammad Khan joined Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) on Wednesday soon after Shehbaz Sharif landed in Peshawar for his maiden visit after being sworn in as the party president.
Siraj Khan was elected to the National Assembly from the NA-6 Nowshera-II constituency in the 2013 general elections.
This is the first major relief for the PML-N after the party was shocked by eight of its members from South Punjab parting ways with it and forming an independent group to struggle for a separate province of South Punjab.
