The Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) has directed its Ministers in Sindh Assembly to submit their written resignations to the chairman secretariat at Bilawal House Karachi by Monday.
According to the details, the MPAs have been directed to submit their registration under the name of Speaker Sindh Assembly Agha Siraj Durrani in compliance with the decisions made in the PDM meeting on December 8.
In the meeting that was held at PML- N Secretariat in Islamabad, Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) and Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) Chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman had announced that lawmakers belonging to different opposition parties would submit resignations to their respective party heads by December 31.
He had further said that PDM leaders would meet on December 31 in Islamabad to make important decisions with regard to the alliance’s future strategy.
No Harm to Assembly
It may be recalled that on Thursday while addressing media, Federal Railways Minister Sheikh Rasheed dismissed the Opposition’s threat to resign from the assembly.
He said that it wouldn’t have any impact on the lower house of Parliament. “The resignation will not harm the assembly,” Rasheed said while talking to the media in Lahore. He was also unfazed by the PDM’s long march to Islamabad and told them they are welcome to the federal capital and the winters will be waiting for them.
“Prime Minister Imran Khan has made an offer – come to the assembly and hold a dialogue,” said Rasheed, adding that if the Opposition should clarify who they want to speak to if not Imran Khan.
