The PTI has withdrawn the name of Nasir Khosa for the post of caretaker chief minister of Punjab, announced the leader of the opposition in Punjab Assembly, on Wednesday.

"Proper consultations were not held and the decision was taken in haste," said PTI's Mehmood-ur-Rasheed, who is the leader of the opposition in Punjab Assembly. "We will propose a new name for the caretaker chief minister Punjab within the next 24 hours," he added.

Rasheed said that a confusion had been caused over the names of Tariq Khosa and Nasir Khosa.

Nasir Khosa, a former bureaucrat, has served as the principal secretary under former prime minister Nawaz Sharif in 2013.

PTI running away from elections: Punjab government spokesperson

The PTI is running away from elections but we will not let them escape, says Malik Muhammad Ahmad, Punjab government's spokesperson, while speaking exclusively to SAMAA TV.

"There are legal hiccups which we will have to overcome now because of the PTI's irresponsibility," he said.

Malik said that the caretaker chief minister Punjab's name had already been decided between the leader of the opposition and the chief minister yet the PTI had retracted at the last minute.

"They are running from elections as even their own surveys and reports are not returning with favourable results," he said.

Withdrawing Khosa's name was an irresponsible decision by the PTI: Shahzad Iqbal

SAMAA anchor and host of the show Awaz Shahzad Iqbal said that the decision taken by the PTI was an irresponsible one.

"It takes two minutes to conduct your research about a particular individual," he said. "Why did they not hold proper consultations and advisory meetings?"

Shahzad Iqbal said that the PTI never cared about reaction from the masses when various controversial figures joined the party's fold hence it was a little strange why that was given as the reason for withdrawing his name.

"In my show Awaz, Rasheed said that Shehbaz Sharif was surprised when I suggested the name of Khosa," he said. "Shehbaz Sharif was not expecting the PTI to name a candidate who was so close to the Sharif family."
