MULTAN, Pakistan: Javed Hashmi announced on Wednesday his resignation as president of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and its member, saying he could no longer continue his membership with a party ‘conspiring’ to dismantle democracy in Pakistan.
“There are a few hypocrites with Imran,” Hashmi told media persons on Wednesday. “I have told him the bad times have begun for his party,” he added.
Hashmi further said he had no intention to join any party and would rather contest the elections independently.
The PTI suspended the membership of its renegade president Javed Hashmi on September 22 and summoned him to the party secretariat to explain his case on September 29.
Javed Hashmi resigned from his National Assembly seat on September 2, a couple of days after he distanced himself from the protest sit-ins organised by the PTI and the Pakistan Awami Tehreek in Islamabad when the two parties decided to mount a march on the official residence of the prime minister.
