Sources said that Shah will formally announce his joining of the PTI at a meeting with Imran Khan after Eid.
Amir Iqbal Shah, former PML-N member of the Punjab Assembly, would also join the PTI, party sources said, adding that the two former legislators were parting ways with the Nawaz-league over issuance of party tickets for the forthcoming elections.
Amir said that they had yet to decide on a party to contest the election from.
It is pertinent to mention here that Iqbal Shah had defeated PTI leader Jahangir Tareen’s son Ali Tareen in NA-154 Lodhran by-election held in February this year.
