Farogh Naseem resigned on Monday as law minister to represent the government before the Supreme Court in Justice Qazi Faez Isa presidential reference case.

The former minister confirmed his resignation and said, "I have no personal vendetta [against] any person, judge, bar council or a lawyer not even with Justice Qazi Faez Isa. I will appear in the Honorable Court only as a lawyer to assist the Hon'ble Court."

He has sent his resignation letter to Prime Minister Imran Khan for approval. The Supreme Court will resume the hearing on Tuesday (tomorrow).

This is the second time that Naseem has resigned from his post. Last year in November, he resigned to represent government in the case related to the extension in the tenure of Chief of the Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa.
