In major blow, Fawad Chaudhry announces ‘parting ways’ with PTI

  • Former minister condemns the 9th May incidents, resigns from the party position
Published May 24, 2023

The PTI has suffered another blow with former minister Fawad Chaudhry announcing he would take a break from politics and part ways with the party.

In a tweet, the former vice president of the PTI announced his resignation from the party position.

“My earlier statement where I unequivocally condemned the 9th May incidents, I have decided to take a break from politics, therefore, I have resigned from party position and parting ways from Imran Khan,” he said.

Fawad was initially arrested outside the Supreme Court (SC) on May 11, two days after PTI Chairman Imran Khan was also detained. The party’s statement said the arrest was carried out despite Fawad having been granted protective bail by the Islamabad High Court till May 12.

On May 16, Fawad Chaudhry, who avoided arrest by running inside the Islamabad High Court (IHC) building, finally got relief after the high court barred the police from arresting him in any “undisclosed” case for two days.

Following the events of May 9, Fawad is not the first PTI member to leave the party.

On Tuesday, two senior party leaders, Shireen Mazari, and Fayyazul Hassan Chohan, announced they were leaving the party. On the same day, PTI’s Mian Jalil Sharaqpuri announced parting ways with the party and blamed former prime minister Imran Khan for the violence that ensued on May 9.

Salman Qureshi, a councilor-elect of the PTI, announced parting ways with his party on Saturday.

Last week, Amir Mehmood Kiyani left the party, saying May 9 violence was a painful event for everyone.

PTI MNA from Karachi, Mohamood Moulvi has also announced to quit the party over May 9 vandalism against military installations. Mahmood, who was PTI’s MNA from Karachi’s NA-25, also announced his resignation from the seat.

PTI chief Imran Khan claimed on Tuesday that members of his party were being forced to leave the party at “gunpoint”.

Speaking to journalists at an anti-terrorism court (ATC) in Islamabad, Imran said: “People are not leaving the party on their own, they are being forced to do so, and that too at gunpoint”.

However, he maintained that he was not bothered about the development as PTI’s vote bank was set to increase following recent events.

And just like farts in the wind, they are gone. For those of us who knew Niazi was going to mess up since disgusting dharna 2014, this is a much delayed but inevitable outcome of a crooked plan. Why people are so gullible and listen to emotional talk and slander but not actions..... now we all pay the price.

I don't support any political party but my question is that with all the power that is visible now why did the authorities/powerful departments not take actions for the billions of dollars taken as loans and lost to corruption. It is very much evident that everyone is part and parcel of the corrupt lot. Starting from Mullahs to Politicians to Bureaucrats to the men in uniform.....everyone is 100% corrupt who are trying to eat the flesh and blood of Pakistanis.

He should have stopped Imran from his vitriol agsint the army leadership past and present. It created the fissure between people and the forces.

Pakistan is technically under military dictatorship. The establishing forcing people at gun point to leave PTI, is insane. Democracy is dead. Even though I am India, I wish a better outcome. But now it appears that the military is strongly trenched in for the next three decades or more.

@Notsurprised, Emotional talk is not the reason for the military to involve in politics and disband the PTI. Let people decide. But in Pak the army is deciding.

What goes around, comes around!!! Before 2018, how electable politicians were coerced to join PTI and that was under pressure too. Now, it is just the payback time. Further, this fall is a prime example of "PRIDE HATH A FALL". Power and Fame are such a lustful experience of life that hardly anyone has been spared from their lust and greed for these two. Arrogance, Lies, Pride, Selfishness, Cult and Dictatorship, Rigidity led to the fall. After all, it was the King's party and King decided to disband it. PAKISTAN FIRST!!!!!

@Shahid Khan, If you have studied in English medium school in your childhood, just recall the story of Pied Piper and his Rodents. Perhaps, a chapter on psychology of Cult power would enlighten you more. It will not take you much time to get to the logical conclusion.

@KhanRA, Don't forget to name Sheikh Rashid and Chaudharies of Gujrat. They are more than practical example of boot lickers. Sharifs at least paid back something. (I'm apolitical person).
