ISLAMABAD: Former Foreign Minister Hina Rabanni Khar on Saturday dispelled rumours about quitting the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and said that she will “swim and sink together” with it.

"These are unsubstantiated rumours, please ignore," Hina Rabbani Khar told The Express Tribune.

Earlier this week, rumours were rife that Hina might be joining Imran Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI). However, the former foreign minister confirmed that she will not be joining PTI.

On Friday night, Hina's father also denied the reports of her exit from the party.

K2 | 5 years ago | Reply Why PTI is eager to bring them in the fold. These people are feudal lords they know nothing of democracy. They are rule their lands by keeping its people uneducated. If anyone has doubt please visit the lands owned by Mr. Khar.
Salman - SK | 5 years ago | Reply As much as I dislike PPP's anti-people policies and performance, loyalty is a virtue that should be lauded. If the Khars benefitted from the PPP's rule, they should not now abandon it for greener pastures. Then again, PTI may not have made them a lucrative offer; and Khars only add to the coterie of feudals that constitute the backbone of PPP.
