KARACHI: Pakistan Peoples Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari has accepted the resignation of Dr Asim as the president of PPP Karachi Division, on Friday.
According to details, Dr Asim had submitted his resignation as the party’s Karachi Division President to PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari.
Bilawal had accepted his resignation and acknowledged Dr Asim’s services for the political party. He said that Dr Asim will be given a new position with the party which will have its own responsibilities.
“Dr Asim’s services for the party are commendable,” said Bilawal Bhutt0-Zardari.
Supreme Court of Pakistan on Thursday gave a go-ahead to former petroleum minster Dr. Asim Hussain to go abroad for his medical treatment.
Hearing his petition, Qazi Faez Isa had granted his plea to remove Dr Asim’s name from exit control list (ECL) and allowed him to travel abroad.
The court said Dr. Asim can fly abroad with permission from the trial court, wondering, “Why is there no same criterion of law for all?
He added several people accused in many other cases including high treason are moving around with impunity, querying, “Why does the federation have no uniform treatment with all the accused?”
Justice Isa also wondered as to what measures were taken up to bring back home the accused sitting abroad.
