Islamabad, Nov 15: Cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan on Monday said former Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi would join his Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf party later this month. 


Khan made the announcement on a television talk show hours after Qureshi told a news conference that he had resigned as a member of both parliament and the ruling Pakistan People's Party.

He said Qureshi would join the Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf during a rally to be held at Ghotki in Sindh province on November 27.

Qureshi, who is also a spiritual leader and has many followers in the Ghotki area, had been estranged from the PPP since he was not reallocated the foreign affairs portfolio during a cabinet reshuffle in February. 

He sought to blame President Asif Ali Zardari for his decision to leave the PPP.

His decision was not unexpected as Pakistan's political circles were abuzz with reports that he intended to sever his ties with the PPP as he had been completely sidelined within the party after criticising the policies of the government and Zardari.
