Former PTI Members in Gujrat Announce Departure Amid Criticism of Handling May 9 Incident

In a significant development, former members of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) from Gujrat, including ex-MNA Syed Faiz ul Hassan Shah and ex-MPA Chaudhry Arshad, have announced their departure from the party. The announcement was made during a press conference held in Gujranwala.

During the press conference, both leaders condemned the incidents that took place on May 9 and demanded accountability for those responsible. Syed Faiz ul Hassan Shah emphasized that their decision to disassociate from PTI and its founding chairman is rooted in concerns regarding the events of May 9, asserting that the incident has placed a burden on politicians.

Chaudhry Arshad, a former member of the Punjab Assembly, declared that he will not join any other political party in the future and will refrain from participating in upcoming elections. This announcement underscores the gravity of their discontent with the party’s response to the May 9 events and its leadership.

The departure of prominent members from PTI in Gujrat indicates growing internal dissent and highlights the challenges faced by the party in managing internal dynamics. The criticism of the handling of the May 9 incident seems to have become a catalyst for this decision, emphasizing the significance of accountability and internal party cohesion.

The political fallout from the May 9 incident continues to reverberate, affecting the standing of PTI in various regions. It also underscores the broader implications of political events on party loyalty and the integrity of political organizations.

As the former PTI leaders distance themselves from the party and express dissatisfaction with its leadership, the political landscape in Gujrat experiences a notable shift. The decision not to align with any other political entity adds an intriguing dimension to their dissent, indicating a reluctance to associate with alternative political platforms.

This development may prompt a reassessment of PTI’s internal policies and responses to critical incidents. It also highlights the delicate balance that political parties must maintain to ensure unity among their members, especially in the face of events that test the party’s resilience and cohesion.
