Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) founding member Fauzia Kasuri on Wednesday parted ways with the party.
“It should come as no surprise to you that I have decided to leave the PTI,” her resignation letter read.
Thanking party chairman Imran Khan for providing her a platform, she said she had grown disenchanted with the direction the party had taken post 2013. Kasuri said the the PTI was longer representative of the aspirations of millions of citizens wanting transformative change.
“Furthermore, you opted to hand the reins of the party to those we fought against since our inception, at the cost of workers who in some cases laid down their lives,” the letter goes on to read. “Sadly, this was the final nail in the coffin,” she added.
Wishing luck to Khan, she expressed hope that the PTI chief would strive to bring about the very change he once vowed to bring if presented the opportunity to form government.
