The prominent leader of the PML-N joins a list of top leaders who recently parted ways with the ruling party

Former Sindh governor Muhammad Zubair on Sunday announced to quit PML-N over some reservations.

Without disclosing what issues exactly led to his departure, the former spokesperson of Muslim League (N) President Nawaz Sharif and Vice President Maryam Nawaz, Muhammad Zubair said that he would decide his future politics in consultation with his “friends”.

In one of his earlier statements, the former governor of Sindh complained that it is not the right way to govern based on controversial elections. There was a strong disagreement in the party’s position, so there could be no way of reconciliation and mediation.

According to him, the decision to leave the party was taken a long time ago.

He said that there were differences on various issues including the no-confidence motion against Imran Khan, and the 16-month functioning of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), the party’s stance had changed, so he separated itself from the party.

The prominent leader of the PML-N joins a list of top leaders who recently parted ways with the ruling party, including former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and ex-finance minister Miftah Ismail.

He said that when he was with the party, it was of civilian supremacy, now it becomes very difficult to stay in power at any cost.

He said that Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and Miftah Ismail had left the Muslim League (N) on the very first day. If you ask Miftah Ismail and Daniyal Aziz, there is no forum for accountability in the party.

Former spokesman of Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz, Muhammad Zubair, clarified that Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has announced to form a party, but he has not taken any decision yet, he will decide on the future in the next few days.

It should be noted that Muhammad Zubair was appointed the 32nd Governor of Sindh on February 2017, after the death of Justice (Rtd) Saeedul Zaman Siddiqui.
