Sadaqat Ali Abbasi, a prominent leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI), has announced his resignation from the party and retirement from politics. His decision made public during a live television interview on Dawn News, has sent shockwaves through the political landscape of Pakistan.

Abbasi’s resignation comes from his strong disapproval of PTI’s anti-establishment agenda. He voiced concerns over the party’s growing alignment with ‘radical’ views that oppose the establishment and various government departments, views he believes are causing more harm than good to the state.

What adds to the intrigue surrounding Abbasi’s resignation is his unexplained absence from the public eye for several months. Many speculated that he had been detained following the events of May 9. When pressed about his whereabouts during this period, he revealed, “I stayed with a friend for a month after it happened, then I moved to Gilgit Baltistan (GB) with family.”

Abbasi’s decision to step away from politics is driven by his reluctance to bear the burden of the events of May 9 any longer. In his own words, he stated, “I don’t want to stand with anything that brings even an ounce of harm to my country.”

Moreover, he shed light on the growing concern within the party that his arrest could lead to widespread protests. He alluded to specific government departments, indicating a shift from a political battle to a confrontation with a particular entity.

When questioned about PTI’s inability to effectively manage the situation, Abbasi pointed to the PTI chairman’s susceptibility to the influence of individuals with ‘strong opinions.’ He claimed that the chairman had not fully considered the repercussions of his actions until it was too late.

The abrupt departure of a prominent PTI leader like Sadaqat Ali Abbasi has raised questions about the party’s internal dynamics and direction. It remains to be seen how this resignation will impact PTI’s future and its relationship with the establishment and government departments.

This unexpected development has the potential to reshape Pakistan’s political landscape and could have far-reaching consequences for PTI’s position in the country’s politics. As the nation watches closely, the ramifications of Abbasi’s resignation will undoubtedly continue to unfold in the days and weeks to come.
