Former Attorney General Babar Awan officially resigned from the Senate on Thursday confirming that he had sent a resignation letter to Raza Rabbani.

"I am not Nehal Hashmi to retrace after retirement." Awan spoke with DawnNews.

He mentioned Senator Harry (PML-N), who resigned from the Senate after the videotape was released to those investigating the family of Nawas Sharif in connection with the Panamanian incident.

Hashmi's remarks were made clear in connection with a survey of the Supreme Court's approval of the Sharif family's overseas business dealings.

However, a few days after the resignation, Hashimi resigned after meeting with Senator Raza Rabbani. Nevertheless, he was expelled from PML-N.

"Every time I call the president to confirm my resignation, I will introduce myself," Awan said on Thursday.

Last week, former PPP leaders announced their decision to join Pakistan's Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI).

"I entrusted ministry to the pursuit of justice, even leaving the Senate and joining the PTI was a challenge," Awan said at the time.

"If my agenda is firm, I will remain in the Senate by 2018," he added.

PPP deviation
PPP is losing its PTI membership in recent weeks as Fordous Ashiq Awan, Dr Nazar Muhammad Gondal, Imtiaz Safdar Warraich, and Nawabzada Ghazanfar Gul have bid with all the party members.

Grouping within the party and local politics are the reasons for desertion.

Warraich, who served as PPP government communications chief of staff in 2008-13, was disappointed when he withdrew from the position of Chief Cabinet Secretary Punjab on "failure to deliver".

Since then there has been reports that PPP will be terminated to join the PTI.

When the rival party group Qamar Zaman Kaira was named chief of Punjab, his aggravation grew even worse.

Firdous Ashiq Awan complained about Kaira when the PPP took power. She blamed interference with the ministry of information and broadcasting.

But she argued that the party leadership was creating panic among Punjab's PPP leaders at the expense of Punjab's political interests to save Sind's political interests.

PPP has also previously failed to act as a "true opposition" in the provinces with the hopes of the public "making the party meaningless".

Gondal is known to upset the PPP because he did not lend his support for corruption charges of Rs 40 billion EOBI to his brother Zafar Gondal.

Gul was not satisfied with PPP's reconciliation with PML-Q. Chaudhry Shujaat and Pervaiz Elahi are arch-rivals of Nawabzadas in Gujrat provincial government.
