QUETTA: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Mir Aslam Rind announced to quit the party after being ‘ignored’ from the party ticket for the General Elections 2024, announcing to contest the poll as an independent candidate, ARY News reported.
While leaving the party, Mir Aslam Rind accused the PML-N Balochistan President of doing nepotism in awarding the party tickets. He said that the party provincial chief awarded a ticket to his son-in-law while ignoring the merit.
