Two leaders of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), Wajiha Qamar and Chaudhry Sajid Mehmood, officially submitted their resignations on Sunday, signaling their departure from the former ruling party.
Former PTI Member of the National Assembly (MNA), Wajiha Qamar, announced her decision to join Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) during a meeting with PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif. She commended PML-N’s historical role in Pakistan’s development and emphasized her trust in Nawaz Sharif, Shehbaz Sharif, and the party’s manifesto. She was warmly welcomed by the former prime minister, Shehbaz Sharif.
In a press conference at the Rawalpindi Press Club, Sajid Mehmood cited his reasons for leaving PTI, primarily expressing concerns about the party’s anti-establishment stance and its adverse impact on the nation’s economy. He strongly condemned the May 9th incidents and called for swift justice for the perpetrators, offering an apology to PTI voters before declining further questions.
