The Prime Minister of Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) Abdul Qayyum Niazi has resigned from office after Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) members filed a no-confidence motion against him.

During a press conference on Thursday, Abdul Qayyum Niazi has questioned why a no-trust motion was initiated against a sitting government. He said that his records in terms of corruption were clean.

Abdul Qayyum Niazi has said that he has resigned from the prime minister’s office as his party members filed a no-confidence motion against him. He said that he is a democratic person and he will always remain with PTI Chairman Imran Khan.

“I took my democratic decision and resigned in a dignified manner. The resignation was first sent to the party chairman and then to the president.

It is to be noted here that twenty-five members from the ruling Tehreek-e-Insaf in Azad Jammu and Kashmir had filed a no-confidence motion this Tuesday against Abdul Qayyum Niazi, accusing him of failing to implement the party’s manifesto and creating a mess.
