Missing’ Usman Dar appears on TV to quit PTI


Usman Dar on Wednesday announced to leave the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf, in a surprising comeback weeks after going missing under mysterious circumstances.

The young politician from Sialkot, who was considered a stalwart of PTI chairman Imran Khan, remerged on a private TV channel to give a warts-and-all picture of the party’s ‘nefarious designs’ against the military “for losing power through no-trust motion”.

Dar had spent months in hiding to avoid arrest in multiple cases before his abduction from Karachi’s Malir Cantt some 20 days ago.

Today, he appeared in Dunya TV’s ON THE FRONT with Kamran Shahid and said the May 9 attacks were aimed at “removing Army chief General Syed Asim Munir”.

“May 9 incident did not occur in a day,” Dar said when asked about who masterminded the May 9 attacks following Imran Khan’s arrest by paramilitary troops from Islamabad high court.

But, he said Imran Khan himself ordered to attack the military installations in case of his arrest.

The 49-year-old, who has been a strong critic of the country’s military following the ouster of PTI’s government last year, said he has always respected the Pakistan Army and its martyrs.
