In a surprise move, the prominent PTI leader from Lahore Sardar Kamil Omar belonging to an influential political Sardar family quit the PTI and joined ruling PML-N. The decision was surprising at the time when many PML-N leaders and law makers have already joined PTI and many more are in touch with PTI to change side. But Sardar Kamil Omar and his brothers Sardar Adil Umer and Sardar Aqil Umer decided to join PML-N when it facing lot of difficulties and challenges.
It is a big setback for PTI as Sardar brothers enjoyed some support in two national assembly constituencies in Lahore. Sardar Kamil is a former member of national assembly and his brother served as Town Nazim.
The announcement came after a meeting of Sardar Kamil Omar and his brothers — Sardar Adil Umar and Sardar Aqil Umar — with Punjab Chief Minister and PML-N President Shahbaz Sharif. The brothers expressed complete confidence in Shehbaz’s leadership while the PML-N president welcomed them to the party.
