In what appeared to be a big-blow to the Imran Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), its senior leader and one of the old guards Shireen Mazari has resigned from the party.
“Party program has been taken over by ‘big money,” she posted on social networking site twitter.
“The think tanks were isolated from policy formulation. Party created compromised policies and changed its principles and brought in intermediaries. Not leaving PTI for any other party, purely based on political issues,” she wrote.
“I regretfully resign as people had real hopes with PTI, I felt it better to resign after the Rajanpur incident. There were many differences between me and the party recently PTI didn’t need political names after the Lahore Jalsa. People supported PTI due to their ideology,” she added.
“I didn’t ask for any high post, purely out of commitment to ideology. I have given in my resignation from PTI.
Earlier, Iman Hazir Mazari, the daughter of Shireen Mazari, also left the party after being insulted by her co-workers, particularly internet warriors.
In one of her blogs posted on the internet she said that she could not stand the bashing she was subjected to regarding her work, her attitude towards ex-fellow party members and a lot of other things but one thing she had put up with for the last six months was abuse and character assassination.
