The Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) leader Imran Khan has reportedly claimed that he was offered the post of the deputy prime minister of Pakistan by the ruling Pakistan Muslim League- Nawaz (PML-N) government during the last round of negotiations.

The disclosure came on Wednesday hours after the last round of talks concluded between PTI's representatives and the government. Describing the offer as an attempt to bribe him, Khan said that he had rejected the offer, reported the Dawn.

However, Dr Arif Alvi, a member of the PTI's negotiating team, claimed that the offer was made by one of the members in Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's team of negotiators in a "casual" way and no one took it seriously.

A PML-N member had earlier written a letter to Sharif suggesting him to appoint a deputy prime minister in consultation with PTI, which may have been the basis on which Khan claimed that the offer was made to him, the report said.

Terming the proposal "impractical," Alvi questioned the rationale behind offering PTI members the post of deputy prime minister in Sharif's government when his resignation is the main demand put forward by the party.
