Dissident MPs could be forgiven if they rejoined the ruling PTI: PM Imran

Prime Minister Imran Khan said dissident MPs might be forgiven if they returned to the ruling PTI’s fold, or face a “social boycott.”

“Return to the party’s fold or face social boycott,” he told opposing PTI members on Sunday in Dargai, a small town in Malaknad district, KPK.

PM Imran also praised India’s “independent foreign policy” that benefited its own people. He claimed that, like India, which, despite US sanctions, imports energy from Russia, his foreign policy would benefit Pakistanis.
