Amid speculation that his party was being covertly backed by the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan today vowed to "quit politics" if the claim was proved.

The legendary cricketer rubbished claims that the ISI was sponsoring Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) party.

"I will quit politics if the ISI s support to Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf is proved," he vowed at a news conference held in Islamabad.

In the last few months, Imran s party has emerged as a major player in Pakistan s uncertain political scenario particularly after it held a massive rally in October in Lahore which attracted thousands.

However, there has been growing speculation that the emergence of Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf as a political force may be due to the support of the Pakistan Army and military-run ISI.

Amid suggestions that Imran is being backed by the powerful security establishment, several political leaders have joined the party.
