LAHORE: Only opportunists are leaving the party while people who are committed to bring change are joining it, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan said on Wednesday.

“In coming months, good reputed politicians will join the party; PTI will win the upcoming elections on the basis of its manifesto and ideology,” Khan said.
On September 26, PTI’s Central Vice President Shireen Mazari resigned from the party. She was served a show-cause notice by the party administration after she had alleged that the “the party and its Chairman have been hijacked by feudals.”
Calling PTI and Pakistan’s ideology the same thing, Khan said his party will make this country an Islamic welfare state and social justice will prevail.

All the new members expressed their confidence in Khan’s leadership and said only he can rescue the country from prevailing crisis.
