Zulfi Bukhari resigns as Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Overseas Pakistanis over the allegations levelled against him in the Rawalpindi Ring Road (RRR) project scam.

In a series of tweets on Monday Syed Zulfiqar Bukhari known as Zulfi Bukhari announced his decision stating the reasons.

He shared his statement in a series of tweets saying: “My Prime Minister has always said that if a person has been named rightly or wrongly in any inquiry he should cease to hold any public office till his name has been cleared of charges. Owing to the allegations in the ongoing Ring Road inquiry I want to set this example by resigning from office until my name is cleared up of any allegations and the media’s obnoxious lies.

I reiterate that I have nothing to do with Ring Road or any ongoing Real Estate project. This time the inquiry should be done by capable personnel, I endorse a judicial inquiry.

I’m here to stay in Pakistan and stand united with the Prime Minister and his vision. I sacrificed my life overseas to come and serve my country, I am ready to face any inquiry.”
