Islamabad, May 26 (PTI) Unfazed after being placed on the no-fly list, Pakistan's former prime minister Imran Khan on Friday thanked the government for barring him from leaving the country, saying he has no plans to travel overseas as he neither owns properties nor has any businesses abroad.

Khan, along with his wife Bushra Bibi and other leaders and former assembly members of his Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party were reportedly barred from leaving the country on Thursday.

Taking to Twitter, Khan wrote: "I want to thank the government for putting my name on the ECL as I have no plans to travel abroad, because I neither have any properties or businesses abroad nor even a bank account outside the country." "If and when I do get an opportunity for a holiday, it will be in our northern mountains, my favourite place on earth," he said.
