KARACHI: MQM leader Ail Raza Abidi announced that he was resigning from his party and National Assembly seat.
His decision came shortly after MQM-P leader Farooq Sattar and PSP head Mustafa Kamal held a joint press conference in Karachi and announced launching a new political party to contest the next general elections.
Ali Raza Abidi made that statement through a tweet.
Ladies n Gentlemen from the Holy land of Karbala, I announce to quit MQMP n resign from NA251 as this is not what I believed in n stood for.
