Tariq Mehmood was elected MNA from NA-98 constituency of Gujranwala. He had parted ways with PML-N last week along with two former MPAs belonging to PML-N. Tariq Mehmood met PTI’s former secretary general Jahangir Khan Tareen following which party chief Imran Khan convened a meeting in Bani Gala and formally welcomed him to the PTI.
