The former MQM member who won on a PTI ticket from NA-245 in the 2018 general elections, had earlier hinted at resigning in a post on Twitter, citing reasons that he is a helpless MNA of Karachi who is unable to provide electricity to the people of the city.
“I confess that I am a helpless MNA of Karachi. I am unable to provide electricity to the people of my city. I cannot see the people of my city suffer. I will ask the prime minister for time and submit my resignation,” he had said.
میں اعتراف کرتا ہوں میں کراچی کا ایک بے بس ایم این اے ہوں… اپنے شہر کے لوگوں کو بجلی فراہم کروانے سے قاصر ہوں… مجھ سے کراچی اور بالخصوص اپنے حلقے کے لوگوں کا تڑپنا سسکنا اور مونس علوعی کے جھوٹ سہنا نہیں دیکھا جاتا وَیراعظم سے وقت مانگا ہے مل کر انہیں استعفی پیش کردوں گا

Karachi has been hit with intense power outages for the last few weeks as the federal government and the Sindh government continue to trade barbs over the city’s power issues and power supplier K-Electric.
The city has been experiencing up to 10 hours of unannounced power cuts despite assurances from ministers.
This is not the first time that the PTI MNA has been in the news for being upset at his party.
