KARACHI - Former chief minister Syed Ghaus Ali Shah has resigned as Sindh PML-N president for allegedly being ignored by the party leadership.
According to details, PML-N Sindh chief Ghaus Ali Shah, before leaving for Umra on Friday, resigned from the party’s provincial headship. Sources said he was not happy with the party leadership. They added Nawaz Sharif ignored Ghaus Ali Shah while taking important decisions like nomination of Mamnoon Hussain as the president of the country and governorship of the Sindh province. Even Shah was not invited to the meetings of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in Karachi and Ghotki, which disheartened the seasoned politician who has been loyal to the Sharif family at difficult times during the Musharraf regime.
The sources claimed this treatment by the party leadership disappointed the seasoned politician, forcing him to resign as PML-N Sindh chief. It is expected that more PML-N Sindh leaders may quit the party after Shah’s resignation.
His close aides said Ghaus Ali Shah was out of the country and would announce his future line of action on his return. PML-N Kharipur District President Abdul Majeed Sheikh confirmed the resignation of Ghaus Ali Shah, adding his differences with the party surfaced at the time of the presidential election.
