Another two diehard leaders of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf have turned their back on the party while also announcing quitting politics, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
An important PTI wicket has fallen as party’s Sindh President Ali Zaidi has announced to quit politics. The PTI leader from Sindh proclaimed in a video message on Saturday that he was parting ways with the party, saying that the Pakistan Army was our pride.
He said: “I condemn the May 9 violence. What happened wasn’t right. I resign from the post of PTI Sindh president. I have always served Pakistan.”
The former federal minister said that after a lot of thinking he took the “difficult decision” of leaving politics.
He said when he would leave the politics he would also resign from the party position and resign as an MNA.
He, however, expressed his resolve to serve Pakistan. He said he used to work for the betterment of Pakistan before and would bring investment to the country.
“Now I Will again do the same business of export. I quit politics. I have nothing to do with politics. Pakistan Army Zindabad. Pakistan Zindabad,” he concluded.
Another Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader and former federal minister Khusro Bakhtyar has announced to quit the PTI.
In a video message on Saturday, Khusro Bakhtyar said that a year ago he had told the top and frontline leadership of the party that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf's new political plan of confrontation with state institutions would be harmful for the party.
Bakhtyar said that due to this policy of the PTI, he distanced himself from the PTI politics. “I have also distanced myself from the membership of the core committee and the presidentship of the South Punjab,” he added.
The former federal minister said that the heart-wrenching events of May 9 had forced him to adopt aloofness from the political philosophy of the Tehreek-e-Insaf.
“I can't go on with this anymore. I am pretty sure that the future of Pakistan is not in the politics of division and partisanship,” the ex-minister concluded.
