PUNJAB: Provincial Minister Sardar Dost Muhammad Khosa of Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) gave in his resignation which has been accepted by Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif, Express News reported.

According to sources, Khosa was being pressured by his family to resign from the ministry and stated in his resignation that he was resigning due to personal reasons.

A week earlier, a case was registered against Khosa for kidnapping his ex-wife Sapna Khan. This had been a major cause of pressure for him, so much so that he was not even present in the provincial cabinet and Punjab Assembly meetings.

Sardar Dost Muhammad Khosa is also a former Chief Minister Punjab and was transferred through different ministries under the current government.

    At least PML N members have a better culture of resigning over such issues.

    How about the resignation of the of Ayesha Haq. Is Hamza Shahbaz going to follow Khosa?
    Let us hope Sapna Khan does not become another Fakhra.
