Former interior minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan took oath as a member of the Punjab Assembly on Wednesday.

Khan has taken oath as a provincial lawmaker two years and 10 months after all his fellow lawmakers took oath and the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) formed its government in Punjab.

On Wednesday, the former PML-N leader left the Punjab Assembly soon after acting speaker Dost Mazari administered him the oath. He also had a brief chat with journalists outside the assembly. He also visited the assembly two days ago but could not take oath due to unavailability of the speaker and deputy speaker.

In a brief chat with the journalists, Nisar said that he would visit Lahore soon and talk to them in detail. He said that he would not join any political party.

Nisar was elected to the Punjab Assembly in the 2018 General Elections. He won the election from the PP-10 constituency as an independent candidate. However, the former interior minister did not take oath, as he alleged that rigging cost him the NA-59 seat.
