ISLAMABAD (HRNW) – Senator Saifullah Khan Nyazee and Ex minister Firdous Ashiq Awan announced that he was quitting the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).

On the other side, PTI leader Abrarul Haq also decided to leave the party on Friday.
Addressing a press conference, Mr Haq condemned the events that transpired on May 9 and made it clear that he was quitting politics.
“Proceeding with such attitudes cannot pave the way for the development of the country. I have stopped people from vandalising on May 9,” he added.
Earlier today, former special assistant to Punjab chief minister Firdous Ashiq Awan decided on Friday to leave the party after the May 9 violence.
Addressing a press conference, Ms Awan condemned the events that took place on May 9. She claimed that vandalism was planned at Zaman Park.
“A conspiracy was hatched on a foreign agenda aimed at dishonouring country’s institutions and pleasing foreign masters,” she claimed.
Ms Awan said she was parting with the PTI over the party’s violent and terrorist activities.
She said, “I believe that the martyrs’ love and respect for their country are part of our faith. Those who disrespected the martyrs attacked the foundation and ideology of Pakistan.”
Ms Awan said Imran Khan and country could not run together.
Speaking about her political career, Ms Awan said, “I will continue my political journey and serve the nation. My political journey will continue because the cause of our politics is the welfare of the people of our constituency”.
