ISLAMABAD: Member of the National Assembly (MNA) from the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz Aijaz Ahmed Chaudhary announced on Saturday his decision to join the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf.
“I have decided to resign from my National Assembly seat," Chaudhary said, adding, "I have handed over my resignation letter to [PTI chairman] Imran Khan and joined his fight against corruption.”
Chaudhary was addressing the media in Islamabad along with Imran Khan and other senior party leaders who were present at his residence to celebrate his decision to join the party.
“The current government has failed to facilitate masses,” Chaudhary added, elaborating on his decision to resign from the ruling PML-N.
Further, he said that he would address supporters from atop Imran's container later in the evening to explain the reasons behind his decision to join the PTI.
Speaking at the occasion, Imran alleged Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has given key posts to his relatives instead of deserving PML-N MNAs.
Last night, while addressing his supporters, Imran using cricket jargon claimed that a major wicket of the PML-N would fall today (Saturday), an apparent reference to the PML-N MNA joining PTI.
Chaudhary was elected from NA-108, Mandi Bahauddin constituency during the May 2013 general elections. He contested as an independent candidate and joined PML-N after defeating PML-N MNA Mumtaz Tarrar.
