LAHORE (Web Desk) – Pakistan Peoples Party leader Raja Riaz, who was all set to join Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, is now facing backlash from workers of his prospective party.

Last week, when Raja Riaz announced to join the PTI his own party workers from the PPPP warmly welcomed the move.

However, PTI workers protested against the move, tearing down banners celebrating his switch to PTI ahead of their upcoming rally in Faisalabad.

A local television channel reported earlier that while some groups in PTI’s Faisalabad chapter had welcomed Raja’s inclusion, others were strongly opposed to the idea.
