ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) candidate Barrister Abdullah Kahloon had decided to bid farewell to the party ahead of the forthcoming general elections.
Kahloon, reportedly missing from Lahore airport last night, emerged to condemn the alleged abduction and formally announce his resignation from the political party.
Barrister Abdullah, addressing the media, attributed his absence before the High Court to medical issues.
Disputing social media claims of abduction, he asserted that he was in the company of a friend during the speculated time of his disappearance.
Khaloon said, ”The news circulating about my kidnapping on social media is bogus. Even now, I am with my friend.”
”I have decided not to contest the elections, slated to be held on February 8,” Kahloon said.
He made it clear that, due to the illness, he was not able to appear before the high court.
Speaking about the events that transpired on May 9, Kahloon said, ”I condemn the May 9 vandalism.”
He said those who are responsible for May 9 mayhem should be brought to justice by conducting a trial.
”I am standing for my Pak Army and the state,” he said.
Abdullah Kahloon was a candidate for MPA from constituency PP-78 Sargodha from the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).
