Karachi: Disgraced Pakistani nuclear scientist Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan has said he had been joking about contesting in the next elections.

Khan had earlier expressed a desire to pursue a career in politics, and said Imran Khan`s Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaaf (PTI) was his favoured destination, reports The Express Tribune.

Imran Khan had asked the scientist to join the PTI as a patron last month.

"I would love to join PTI, but on one condition. To pursue real politics, to change Pakistan`s fate," Khan had said.

"People of Pakistan want change. They want to get rid of traditional politicians as they always let them down by (practicing) corrupt politics," he added.
