Karachi (Web Desk): Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf's (PTI) former Member of National Assembly (MNA) Jai Parkash has announced to quit the party.
Addressing a press conference in Karachi, he condemned the vandalism that took place in the country following the arrest of former premier Imran Khan.
He said that what had started off as a peaceful protest on May 9, turned into an attack in which army installations were targeted.
Jai Parkash said that he did not know who the people involved in the attacks were and called for carrying out an investigation to punish those responsible.
The former MNA said he was quitting the party without any pressure, adding that he took the decision after May 9 attacks.
PTI leaders have started leaving the party after the incidents that took place across the country following the arrest of former premier Imran Khan from the premises of the Islamabad High Court (IHC) on May 9.
A day earlier, PTI leader and former adviser Malik Amin Aslam announced to quit Imran Khan-led party saying that it has been overtaken by an "agenda" which got exposed during May 9 protests.
On Wednesday, PTI's Additional General Secretary Aamer Mehmood Kiani, terming May 9 as a day of "national tragedy", announced to part ways with his party and politics.
Kiani expressed regret over the nearly three-day-long riots by the PTI workers and unrest across the country that claimed at least 10 lives and left dozens of others injured across the country.
Meanwhile, PTI's Members of Sindh Assembly (MPAs) Sanjay Gangwani and Karim Gabol also announced to quit the party in protest against attacks on military installations.
On May 16, PTI leader Mahmood Baqi Maulvi also announced to quit the party and resigned as Member of National Assembly (MNA) saying there was ‘no justification’ for going against the security forces.
