Former governor Punjab Chaudhry Sarwar announced on Tuesday that he will join Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, Express News reported.

Sarwar, who resigned from his post on January 29 following a conversation with Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif over statements the governor had made regarding the government’s foreign policy, is likely to take the post of party presiden.

Former PTI president Javed Hashmi gave up the post after differences with PTI chairman Imran Khan over his decision to march towards the Prime Minister House during the party’s ‘Azadi March’.

Sarwar had censured the Foreign Office for US President Barack Obama visiting India and not Pakistan and termed it a “failure” on part of the country’s foreign policy.

Following his resignation, PTI and Pakistan Peoples Party’s senior leadership offered Sarwar to join their respective parties, The Express Tribune had learnt earlier.
