Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) MNA Amir Liaquat Hussain has decided to resign over his failure to solve issues of his constituency.
He took to his twitter handle and confessed that he is a helpless MNA of Karachi who is unable to provide electricity to the people of the city.
Amir Liaquat added that he cannot witness the suffering of the people of Karachi and his constituency.
میں اعتراف کرتا ہوں میں کراچی کا ایک بے بس ایم این اے ہوں… اپنے شہر کے لوگوں کو بجلی فراہم کروانے سے قاصر ہوں… مجھ سے کراچی اور بالخصوص اپنے حلقے کے لوگوں کا تڑپنا سسکنا اور مونس علوعی کے جھوٹ سہنا نہیں دیکھا جاتا وَیراعظم سے وقت مانگا ہے مل کر انہیں استعفی پیش کردوں گا
