PML-Q faces revolt, Cheema quits as fed minister


Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid’s (PML-Q) Tariq Bashir Cheema on Monday resigned as the Federal Minister for Housing soon after top party leadership decided to support Prime Minister Imran Khan in the no-trust vote.

According to sources, Cheema had already informed his party’s leadership regarding his resignation over his stance regarding the government.

They further stated that the lawmaker didn’t want to support the PTI government unlike his party, which has been supporting the latter from the beginning.

The sources also said that the PML-Q leader had adopted a strong stance against the incumbent government, and he said that he won’t retreat from his principled stance against them.

Meanwhile, Cheema also took to Twitter to endorse his decision, saying: “I will vote against [PM] Imran.”
