Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) leader Syed Ali Raza Abidi, on Monday, resigned from his membership from National Assembly citing political and personal reasons, Aaj News reported. 

In a tweet, the Member of the National Assembly (MNA) uploaded a copy of the resignation submitted to Speaker National Assembly Ayaz Sadiq.


Earlier on November 8 Mr Abidi announced his resignation moments after the news of merger between MQM-P and PSP broke out. However the merger was proven out to be a one night stand as MQM-P’s chief Farooq Sattar announced his grievance against PSP’s Mustafa Kamal.

Re-known host Waseem Badami asked Abidi the reason to resigning since the merger between MQM-P and PSP on table.

To this Mr Abidi replied with a list reservations.

Abidi is scheduled for an appointment with the speaker on November 15 where he would verify his resignation before it is accepted.
