Tribune’s Gamechangers 2011: Tehreek-i-Insaf entrants

Exiting established political parties for the ‘inqilab’.

Express January 08, 2012

Leaving one political party for another may earn you the not-so-honorary title of a ‘lota’ along with heaps of criticism, but these politicians have taken the censure in their stride.

While Shah Mahmood Qureshi  led the pack as the first political big-wig to join the PTI after leaving the PPP, former PML-N stalwart Javed Hashmi and Sharif loyalist wowed spectators when he gave up his seat in the National Assembly to join Imran Khan.

Quote of the year: "This is the time we should think of evolving a system to save this country instead of saving the system. The country is deserted, it is sinking and unless we change our attitudes, we can’t save it from further downward slide." – Javed Hashmi
