FAISALABAD: Five PML-N lawmakers announced their resignations from public office during a Khatm-i-Nabuwwat conference organized by Pir Sialvi in Faisalabad on Sunday.
MNAs Dr Nisar Ahmad Jutt and Ghulam Bibi Bharwana, and Punjab MPAs Maulana Rehmatullah, Pir Hameeduddin Sialvi’s son Nizam-ud-Din Sialvi, and Khan Muhammad Baloch announced their resignations protesting government inaction against their demand for the resignation of Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah.
The lawmakers belong to Punjab’s Jhang, Chiniot, Faisalabad and Sargodha districts.
Pir Sialvi, who is also a former senator, earlier claimed at least 15 parliamentarians “spiritually associated” with the Sial Sharif shrine would tender their resignations at the public meeting in Faisalabad.
Earlier this week, the Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif had assured the Pir that he would visit him shortly and clarify the position and remarks of Rana Sanaullah.
