PML-N lawmaker denies rumour he’s quit party

LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) lawmaker Muhammad Ghiyas ud-Din on Sunday denied rumours of his resignation from the Parliament.

The Punjab Assembly member from PP-47 (Narowal-II) told the press that Hamza Shehbaz, the chief minister and party’s vice president, was his leader and he stood firm by his party in what he said was a testing time.

Ghiyas ud-Din also denied the news circulating on TV and social media about his resignation from the seat and quitting PML-N.

Talking to the press from Shakargarh, he said he neither met Punjab Assembly Speaker Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi nor could utter any statement about casting his vote in the latter’s favour.

Ghiyas ud-Din was among the five rebel lawmakers the party expelled in 2020 for “violating party rules” after they had met then-chief minister Usman Buzdar allegedly without the leadership’s permission.
