Taking to Twitter on Saturday, Sayed Zulfikar Abbas Bukhari better known as Zulfi Bukhari said that he has renounced British citizenship and given up his right to live there for Pakistan and for the people of Attock.
“The [incumbent government] used to say that I will run away as I have a British passport and that people who have dual nationality are not Pakistanis,” wrote Zulfi.
“I am 100% Pakistani, I will live and die here,” said the former special assistant, adding that overseas Pakistanis will always be in his heart.
