Differences within Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Sindh were laid as five office-bearers of the party resigned from their posts on Thursday, reported 24NewsHD TV channel. 

As if the resignations given by Haleem Adil Sheikh and Muhammad Ali Junejo were not enough, three other party leaders, namely PTI Sindh General Secretary Mobeen Jatoi, and two others nominated for the post of additional general secretary, Syed Zulfiqar Shah and Akbar Ali Palh, also announced their decision on the same day not to work on these positions. 

While earlier the party was split over the appointment of Sindh Governor Ali Zaidi as PTI provincial president, later other bones of contention raised their heads as well.  

Citing the reason for his resignation, Adviser to Sindh Governor Muhammad Ali Junejo, who had been appointed as PTI Sindh Vice President only today (Thursday), said he was already under lot of stress due to his political engagements. “However, I will continue to perform my duties as a party worker,” he clarified. 

It is worth-mentioning here that Ali Junejo is the son-in-law of PPP leader Aziz Junejo. 

Last, but not the least, Opposition Leader in the Sindh Assembly and an outspoken PTI leader Haleem Adil Sheikh also resigned from his position as senior vice president in the party. 

However, he will continue to discharge his duties both as the opposition leader as well as the party worker.

Giving reasons for his decision, Mubeen Jatoi said he could not give time to the party as general secretary due to family engagements. “However, I will continue to work as PTI Mirpurkhas Secretary,” he added. 

Two nominees for the position of additional general secretary said they were better off as party workers and that they were not interested in occupying positions. 

Sources, however, told the other story and said these people had resigned because they were not given the positions of their liking. 

They disclosed that chances of more resignations could not be ruled out.  Reporter: Iqtidar Anwar
