Islamabad: Awami Muslim League chief Sheikh Rasheed has said that he has proposed to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan, to accept and welcome Nabeel Gabol into the party fold.

He said that it was his personal opinion that the PTI chief welcomed Gabol into the party, to strengthen its base in the Lyari area of Karachi.

Gabol, who was elected as member national assembly from NA-246 constituency Karachi on an MQM ticket, reigned from the party and has hinted to establish his own party, while banking on the support he has in the Lyari area.

While talking about the inordinate delay in the completion of the metro bus project, Rasheed said that its total expenditure has crossed Rs100 billion thresholds, but the work was still going-on, causing billions of rupees losses to the traders. He said that the government has failed to provide relief to the common man.
