PTI leader Usman Dar has resigned from his post as Special Assistant to Prime Minister (SAPM) to run the election campaign for by-election in NA-75 Sialkot, reported 24 NewsHD TV Channel Friday.

Determined to win the Sialkot by-election for his party, Dar resigned from his post hour after the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) Friday issued a notice to him over the violation of the code of conduct ahead of by-election in NA-75 Sialkot.

The ECP, in its notice, told Dar that his picture with PTI candidate in Daska was a violation of Election Act, 2017. The commission directed the SAPM to appear at its Daska office.

Usman Dar, on the other hand, has argued that the elected representatives from the opposition parties such as Rana Sanaullah, Ahsan Iqbal, Khurram Dastgir and Mian Javed Latif also participated in the electioneering.

The ECP also issued notice to four PML-N leaders including Khurram Dastgir, Azma Bukhari, Subhani and Mian Afzal.
