LAHORE: Former chief minister Punjab Dost Muhammad Khosa on Friday resigned from his Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) basic party membership, Express News has reported.
Addressing a press conference at his residence, Khosa lashed out against the PML-N leadership and said what would the standard be of a party where a single person holds 20 ministries.
He claimed that he was made a target of ‘character assassination’ and a case was initiated against him to hide another case.
Earlier, his father Sardar Zulfiqar Khan Khosa, had tendered his resignation from all political offices due to differences with Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif.
The PML-N had constituted a committee comprising the party’s senior leadership in efforts to woo him back.
Zufiqar Khosa has submitted his resignation from the slot of senior advisor to the Punjab chief minister, from having a seat of the Senate and from the party’s membership over differences with party policies and the Punjab chief minister.
