PTI loses major wicket as Nadeem Afzal Chan resigns

LAHORE: Special Assistant to PM on Parliamentary Affairs Nadeem Afzal Chan tendered his resignation on Friday.

According to initial reports, his resignation comes immediately after PM Imran Khan warned ministers in yesterday’s cabinet meeting that they will be expelled from the cabinet if they criticize the government’s policies.

Sources informed The Pakistan Daily that one of the major reasons behind Chan’s exit was the PM’s delay in visiting Machh massacre victims’ families who were demanding justice by staging a protest in freezing temperatures on Quetta’s Western Bypass.

Chan was appointed PM Khan’s special assistant on parliamentary affairs in January 2019.

Formerly affiliated with the PPP, Chan had joined the PTI in 2018. He was made PM Khan’s official spokesman before being appointed SAPM.
