SIALKOT - The disgruntled ticket aspirants of PML-N have joined the PTI and assured their full support to PTI candidates in Sialkot district.

They pledged their support to Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan in NA-72 constituency against PML-N's candidate Chaudhary Armughan Subhani and to PTI candidate Saeed Ahmed Bhalli in constituency (PP 38, Sialkot-IV) against PML-N candidate Ch Tariq Akhtar Subhani.

Local political leader Ch Munawar Hussain, the head of the forward block, called on Dr Firdous and assured her of their full political support.

PML-N dissidents led by Ch Munawar Hussain had established the forward block as a protest against, what they said, unfair distribution of PML-N party tickets in these two constituencies.

On the other side, the Variyo family began the election campaign for its candidates in Sialkot. More than 2,000 people including local councilors belonging to the villages in four local union councils attended the formal election campaign launching the gathering held at Sialkot Cantt.
