Two KP ex-ministers quit PTI

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan is facing an internal crisis within his party as three more former legislators have announced their resignations on Friday. The former PTI ministers who quit the party are Dr. Hisham Inamullah Khan Marwat and Iqbal Wazir. Dr. Hisham Inamullah Khan Marwat is a political figure from Lakki Marwat and a former health minister. He has decided to no longer continue with PTI, and he stated that politics is not more important than Pakistan. He had won a ticket on a PTI basis in the 2018 general elections. Dr. Nausherwan Burki, the de facto chief minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and PTI Chairman Imran Khan both admired Dr. Hisham Inamullah Khan Marwat for his health reforms. However, PTI insiders have revealed that several party leaders in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa viewed him as a threat. After a malicious campaign against the armed forces, Dr. Hisham Inamullah Khan Marwat decided to separate himself from the party.

Iqbal Wazir, a former member of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly from North Waziristan and a provincial minister, announced quitting the PTI over violent protests that had taken place on May 9. At a press conference, he expressed his anger towards PTI’s irrational leaders and workers who had attacked national and security installations. Iqbal Wazir has left the PTI basic membership and district chief position without any pressure or influence.

PTI’s former Member National Assembly (MNA) from Sindh Jai Parkash Ukrani also announced his departure from the PTI. He had supported the PTI party through its peaceful protests, but the violence that took place on May 9 sparking thoughts in Ukrani’s mind to leave the party. According to him, Pakistan’s existence is not possible without the army, and whoever is involved in attacking military installations must be punished.
