MQM-P Ali Raza Abidi dispatches his resignation to Ayaz Sadiq

Karachi (Monitoring Desk): Mutahidda Qaumi Movement Pakistan’s leader and Member National Assembly Ali Raza Abidi has dispatched his resignation from National Assembly to Speaker Ayaz Sadiq.

Citing ‘political and personal reasons’ in the resignation letter, Abidi said in a tweet that he has scheduled an appointment with the speaker on November 15 when he would verify his resignation in person.

The resignation comes days after Abidi, in a tweet from Iraq, announced quitting the MQM-P after it entered into an electoral alliance with the Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP).

Responding to a query about the reasons for his resignation, as the MQM-P and PSP’s alliance has been clarified now, Abidi listed the reasons for his resignation as follows:

“The 4 year operation in Karachi, its motives, interventions, its results and the future. Couldn’t do much for my constituents and Karachi. Census results. local governmnet powers. Can’t be a part of electoral alliance with PSP.”

He then stated, “My apologies to all”.
