KARACHI: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf representative and opposition leader of Sindh Assembly, Firdous Shamim Naqvi announced his resignation from the post but decided to remain a part of the party.
The announcement was made on Friday after Naqvi attended a session of the assembly. Sharing his comments with media person, Naqvi said that he had sent his resignation to Prime Minister Imran Khan through Whatsapp. “PTI is my first and last political party as I am going from my party,” the MPA declared.
However it was not the first time that he had made such announcement. Last year he had also tendered his resignation as the opposition leader and criticized the party leadership including the PM for their inefficiency and incompetency to address different crises in Karachi.
Later on Naqvi had to take his words and decision back as his resignation was not accepted. Now, he informed the media that the Sindh governor Imran Ismail had called the parliamentary party leaders to decide about appointing a new leader of the opposition for the provincial assembly.
Moreover, there are rumors in media about contentions between Naqvi and others as some PTI’s members of the provincial assembly (MPAs) have raised complaints against him for the harsh attitude towards them.
Although reports are also confirming that another PTI MPA Haleem Adil Sheikh is likely to be made new Leader of the Opposition in the Sindh Assembly
