In a message on X, formerly known as Twitter, he said: “After more than one decade in public life, I have decided to completely quit politics. As I had already stated publicly earlier that I disagree with the policy of confrontation with state institutions, and such a policy has led to a serious collision with state institutions, which is not in the interest of the country.”
He said that he was resigning from basic membership of the PTI. “I want to thank all those who have supported me in public life. In particular, I want to thank the NA-54 team and the voters who elected me twice. I have tried my best to serve the constituency that I was elected from. May Allah’s blessings shine upon the Pakistani nation,” he concluded.
