Ali Zaidi quits PTI

PTI announces to tender resignations from National Assembly’

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Sindh President Ali Zaidi joined a long list of leaders jumping ship as he announced on Saturday that he is quitting politics and resigned from party positions.

In a video message, Zaidi said that he had joined politics for Pakistan and had already condemned the May 9 incidents.

“Pakistan’s armed forces are our pride and because of them, we sleep peacefully because they protect our borders. What happened [on May 9] was very wrong and everyone should be held accountable whoever may be involved in it,” said the PTI leader, who was shifted to Jacobabad jail last week.

The former federal minister said that after a lot of thinking he took the “difficult decision” of leaving politics.

“I’m quitting politics. I’m resigning from my positions of Tehreek-e-Insaf Sindh president, core committee member and MNA,” said Zaidi.

Zaidi said that he will continue to “work for Pakistan and bring investments from abroad” which he used to do before entering politics.
