LAHORE: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) member Uzma Bukhari has resigned from the Punjab Assembly and the party, Express News reported on Friday.

She has resigned because of differences with the party.

While speaking to Express News, Bukhari said the “current PPP is not the one she joined under the leadership of Benazir Bhutto.”

“I had expressed my concerns but to no avail,” she said.

Bukhari said the party failed to provide relief to the common man.

Earlier in December 2012, three PPP MPAs submitted their resignations in the assembly secretariat and announced their decision to join Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N).

    And if she ends up joining the greatest “Justice Movement” since the struggle of Nelson Mandela, she would be hailed as the champion of clean and scrupulous politics and a mighty honest politician :D

    @Adnan Siddiqi: PTI is not in any govt to offer her incentives (development funds). even they donot have contested elections yet so there future is unsure as graph has gone down. When the ship is sinking, its the rats who jump first. I do not understand why MNA and MPAs are given discretiony funds? are these auditable? why do they have to get involved in building nalis, repair road? may be ordinary people think that are good for this work only.

    She should have left PPP after the assasination of late Benazir Bhutto.
