PTI’s Khusro Bakhtiar and Saifullah Niazi have quit the party as desertions continue!
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leaders have quit the party, condemning the May 9 violence wherein military installations including Corps Commander House Lahore came under attack.
Former federal minister Makhdoom Khusro Bakhtia in a video message on Friday, Khusro Bakhtiar said “I can’t go with the PTI’s philosophy anymore.” I had distanced myself from the PTI for the last year. I also remained inactive as a core committee member during that period, he said.
He added that the events of May 9 forced me to move away from the ideology of the PTI.
Khusro Bakhtiar further said that I had informed the party leadership that confrontation with institutions would be harmful.
Senator Saifullah Khan Niazi has also announced that he is leaving the PTI, at a press conference where he also condemned the attacks that took place on May 9.
He said that “I have to focus on my life, especially on my family and health”.
