Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Syed Nasir Hussain Shah and Senior Minister of Sindh has tendered his resignation from all of his four portfolios as a provincial minister to the Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah.
According to sources, Nasir Shah was asked to resign from all of his portfolios by the party leadership. He is directed to run a full-fledged by-elections campaign in NA-205 Ghotki. The seat had fallen vacant after federal minister Ali Mohammad Mahar died of a heart attack in May. The competition in the constituency has become tough because Ahmad Ali Mahar, son of the late Ali Mohammad Mahar, is contesting against PPP’s Mohammad Bux Mahar who earlier was elected on the PPP ticket from PS-8 Ghotki IV in 2013 and 2018.
Nasir Shah was a provincial minister of works and services, irrigation, religious affairs and forests department. After accepting the resignation, Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah forwarded it to Governor Imran Ismail under Article 132(3) of the Constitution advising him to accept it.
