Hours after PTI announced it is retracting Abdul Qadir's nomination for Senate from Balochistan, he said that he "wholeheartedly accepts" the decision.
Speaking in Geo News programme "Naya Pakistan", he said that he would even "sacrifice his life" for Prime Minister Imran Khan, adding that "I have always been and will remain a supporter of Imran Khan".
Qadir said he was born and brought up in Quetta, and he had his business in Balochistan's capital as well.
"I have never done any project any Lahore […] before blaming someone, one should have ample evidence of the allegation," he said.
The MPA revealed that he participated in PTI's 2012 and 2013 rallies, where he also provided logistic support to the party.
Regarding claims of being probed by National Accountability Bureau, he said: "Dr Munir is also under investigation. He also has cases against him."
Qadir also refuted claims that he is a Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) member. "Can someone provide evidence of my party membership?"
PTI took back the Senate ticket from Qadir following mounting pressure from within the party.
