Amid the boiling hot political scenario, the PPP has directed its Sindh Assembly members to submit their resignations with the Bilawal House Election Cell, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Friday.

Mukesh Kumar Chawla – the PPP parliamentary leader in the provincial assembly – conveyed the message on telephone to all the members, including Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah, on the directives of Bilawal Bhutto Zardari – the party chairman.

Later, several PPP provincial assembly members confirmed the news as they will start sending their resignations to the Bilawal House Election Cell from today (Friday).

Meanwhile, the issue of accepting these resignations would be discussed in detail during a meeting of the PPP Central Executive Committee scheduled for December 27 at the Naudero House.

Earlier, the PDM had announced that all the component parties would collect resignations from their lawmakers by December 31. However, the timing of forwarding these to the speakers of the respective assemblies would be decided by the opposition alliance later. 

The party regularly holds a meeting at Naudero in connection with the rally held to mark the death anniversary of former prime minister and PPP chairperson slain Benazir Bhutto who was martyred on that day on December 27 in an attack in Rawalpindi outside Liaquat Bagh.  

More Balochistan MPAs resign 

Another 11 provincial legislators submitted their resignations to the respective party heads at national or Balochistan levels, raising the overall number to 13.

Five of them are from the BNP-M who sent their resignations to Sardar Akhtar Mengal. Their names are: Malik Naseer Ahmed Shahwani, Mir Muhammad Akbar Mengal, Sanaullah Baloch, Ahmed Nawaz Baloch and Shakeela Naveed Noor Qazi.

Similarly, JUI-F parliamentary leader Malik Sikandar Khan received resignations from five members while the remaining five will follow the suit in the next two or three days.

Earlier, Nasrullah Khan Barech of Pashtunkhwa Milli Awami Party (PkMAP), Akhtar Hussain Langov or BNP-M and Sham Lal of JUI-F had already followed the PDM decision.
