Mir Zafarullah Khan Jamali, who served as the 15th Prime Minister of Pakistan from 2002 until his resignation in 2004, passed away today (Wednesday).

Earlier, Zafarullah Jamali was put on the ventilator after his health deteriorated as he suffered a cardiac arrest.

Soon after his demise, several political leaders and public figures expressed deep sorrow over the irreparable loss. They termed him as the only ‘hero of politics’.

Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa felt deep grief on the sad demise of Mir Zafarullah Jamali.

In his Twitter message, COAS wrote, “May Allah bless his soul & give strength to the bereaved family to bear this irreparable loss, Ameen”.

Zafarullah Jamali Parted Ways With PML-N

Earlier in 2017, Mir Zafarullah Khan Jamali had parted ways with the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) owing to a conflict of opinion with the party head over confrontation with national institutions.

Jamali had also announced his resignation from the National Assembly stating that truth is not spoken in the assembly.

According to reports, Jamali had advised PML-N President Nawaz Sharif to avoid confrontation with state institutions.

The former PML-N leader is expected to announce his next course of action after consultation with people of his constituency.

Reports also suggest that he had reservations over policies of the PML-N. He stated that former premier Sharif has failed to change despite a multitude of political developments in the country.

Subsequently, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leaders have started making efforts to woo Jamali into their folds.

Later, he had joined hands with PML-N and severed ties with the party after the military coup led by former president Pervez Musharraf.

Jamali Resigns From National Assembly

Later in 2018, Jamali had announced his resignation from the National Assembly.

Jamali had served as the prime minister of Pakistan from 2002 to 2004 during President General (retd) Pervez Musharraf’s tenure.
