Liaquat Jatoi decides to leave PTI
The ruling PTI suffered another setback as Liaquat Jatoi, a former chief minister, decided to leave the party with a stance that the leadership ignored him continuously, reported 24NwesHD TV channel while quoting sources on Friday.
It is said that Jatoi has convened a meeting of his colleagues at Beto Jatoi – his native town in Dadu – where he will hold consultations with them on political line of action in the future.
Jatoi served as the Sindh chief minister as a PML-N member from 1997 till the imposition of Governor’s rule in the province in 1998 due to the poor law and order situation.
However, he later joined the PML-Q and was included in the federal cabinet first as the minister for industries and production before leading the water and power ministry after a change in his portfolio.
Afterwards, Jatoi managed to enter the PML-N again as he merged Sindh Awami Ittehad – which he had formed in 2012 – with it before resigning from the basic party member in January 2014. His association with the PTI began in April 2017.
