Mureed Hussain Qureshi, brother of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Vice Chairperson Shah Mahmood Qureshi, has switched back to the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP).
He announced his decision after receiving Yousaf Raza Gilani on his arrival here. Mureed joined PTI earlier this year during PTI Chairperson Imran Khan’s trip to Multan. Meanwhile, PPP member Ahmed Hasan Dehar was not present at Gilani’s reception and sources suggest he is likely to switch allegiances to Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N).
Dehar was unavailable to confirm or deny the possibility. PPP and PML-N have been striving to win back representatives they have lost to PTI, especially in southern Punjab.
