Earlier in July, the Standing Committee on Accountability and Discipline of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) had taken strict action against one of its lawmakers, MPA Uzma Kardar, and ordered her to resign as the provincial legislator in the Punjab Assembly.
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf sacked Uzma Kardar from the party on basis of the alleged audio call. Uzma Kardar’s alleged audio call was leaked on 15th June.
SAPM Zulfi Bukhari also criticized Uzma Kardar for irresponsible behavior towards her own party.
