Jamshed Dasti resigned from Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and National Assembly membership on Wednesday expressing displeasure over giving undue authority to Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar in his constituency.

Talking to media, Dasti said the main reason for leaving the party was the appointment of corrupt officials in his constituency.

Disgruntled Dasti said that Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar has been made all in all and corrupt officers have been appointed in his constituency.

He said that he has already sent his resignation to the party and is also preparing to forward his resignation from the National Assembly seat.

He said that he would take part in the next elections as an independent candidate from the constituency of Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar, that is Muzaffargarh. He said his resignation has been submitted to the party leadership.
