Expelled By Party
U-Turn on Resignation
Reason Behind ResigningAbidi said he was resigning for political and personal reasons."I announce to quit MQM-P and resign from NA-251 as this is not what I believed in and stood for," Abidi had tweeted following a joint press conference held by MQM-P chief Farooq Sattar and Pak Sarzameen Party Chairman Mustafa Kamal in which both parties announced an alliance, saying they would contest the upcoming general elections under one manifesto, one symbol and one name. but Abidi stuck to his guns.Then He announced on the micro-blogging platform that he had been invited by the speaker to submit his resignation in person . He said he was resigning because of "the four-year operation in Karachi, its motives, interventions, its results and the future," his inability to do anything for his constituency and the city, census results, local government powers and because he could not be a part of an electoral alliance with the PSP.
Contest Election PSPAli Raza Abidi said that he stood by his earlier decision of resigning from National Assembly seat over the alliance with PSP. No merger, not even alliance (like IJI and MMA) with PSP is acceptable for me at all.Then he has announced to contest election against Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP) of chief Mustafa Kamal as an independent candidate.Abidi is not the only person though to voice his disgruntlement over the alliance. Several PPP leaders have met Pakistan People s Party (PPP) leader Asif Ali Zardari and Dr Junaid, the former provincial minister for health, has already announced joining PPP.
