“Hopefully, the message news is not an untrue account like the previous one when Khwaja Asif and Speaker National Assembly were falsely quoted as saying that committee would be given to some other party if my name was not withdrawn. I will stand by the Khan sb through all thick and thin but will never work under a qabza mafia,” said in a tweet.

Earlier today, Imran Khan, the founder of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), reportedly expressed disappointment with party leader Sher Afzal Marwat for what he deemed as ‘irresponsible behavior’ and declined to meet him on Tuesday, according to ARY News.
