I sent this message of resignation to @ImranKhanPTI and other leaders in the party a few moments ago. A message to my supporters in and outside PTI will follow shortly. May Allah guide us All. pic.twitter.com/e4dMlNGesD— Fauzia Kasuri (@FauziaKasuri) May 23, 2018

"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.
