PTI leader Najeeb Haroon resigns as MNA


Senior Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Najeeb Haroon on Saturday resigned from his position as a Member of the National Assembly (MNA) in protest against a lack of funds provided to him for development projects in his constituency. 

Haroon made the announcement early on Saturday morning in a message posted on social networking platform Twitter. He had been elected to the Assembly from NA-256 Karachi on a PTI ticket in the July 2018 general elections. “I tender my resignation with a heavy heart,” he said.

“It has been 20 months and have not been able to improve either my constituency nor my hometown Karachi in good conscience cannot justify being in this position,” he added, noting that he had been a founding member of the first executive committee of the ruling party.

“As the only surviving founding father of the first executive committee I would still be part of my beloved party @PTIofficial till my last breath. I also strongly believe in the capable leadership of @ImranKhanPTI and that he can take #Pakistan to new heights,” he further said.
