"Pakistan ke saath taaluqaat mein naye daur ka aaghaaz par taiyaar hain - Bharatiya vazeer e azam (We are ready for the beginning of a new era in relations with Pakistan - Indian prime minister)", said the PTI press note.
Sources say the PTI chief will vacate National Assembly seats from Islamabad (NA-53), Bannu (NA-35), Karachi (NA-243), and Lahore (NA-131).
The PTI leaders who have won more than one seat will have to vacate additional seats as the law allows an individual to retain only one seat.

Amidst this, if Modi attends the swearing-in of Imran who has the strong backing of the Pakistan Army, it may lead to the peace talks.
Other parties which will have representation in the NA are the Balochistan National Party-Mengal (BNP-M) with three members, and Jamhoori Watan Party, Awami National Party and Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaniyat with one seat each.
The PML-N, which claims it was the target of military manipulation, said it would join in the protests although no date was immediately announced.
"We are pretty much there in the National Assembly. talks are going on with MQM as well", said Faisal Javed Khan, a senior PTI spokesman.
To form the government, Khan needs to garner a simple majority in the lower house.
