After removal of Imran Khan from the office of the prime minister, Punjab Governor Omar Sarfaraz Cheema, Sindh Governor Imran Ismail, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Governor Shah Farman and Gilgit-Baltistan Governor Raja Jalal Hussain are likely to tender their resignations, insiders revealed on Sunday.
They said that Ismail is currently attending a meeting of the PTI in Islamabad and he is expected to hand down his resignation upon his return to Karachi. However, his family is still present in the Governor’s House in Karachi.
On the other hand, Shah Farman said that he would step down from the governor’s post in case PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif gets elected as the prime minister of Pakistan.
“I cannot give Shehbaz the protocol of prime minister,” Farman said.
Moreover, the newly-appointed Punjab Governor Cheema is also expected to resign a few days after assuming the office.
Cheema had also been summoned to Islamabad to attend the PTI’s core committee meeting.
