PTI is yet to release an official statement on the matter, however, Mohammed Fahim Ahmad is not the first lawmaker to quit the party in recent days.
Ex-minister quits PTI
Earlier, former provincial law minister Sultan Muhammad Khan quit PTI. The PTI leader from the Charsadda district of KP also announced joining the Awami National Party (ANP) on September 10. He decided to say goodbye to PTI after holding talks with ANP KP president Aimal Wali Khan.
“We will promote alliance and unity in the political families of the Charsadda. Sultan Muhammad Khan is our family and we convince other people for joining Awami National Party,” ANP president Aimal Khan said on the occasion. He said the ANP is following the golden principle of Bacha Khan for creating national unity among the people.
The idea of lawmakers from KPK leaving PTI is certainly alarming for the party. Pertinent to mention that there are rumours emerging of PTI lawmakers from Punjab also quitting the party. Chairman Imran Khan warned that there is a conspiracy being hatched to topple the PTI provincial government in Punjab.
