Prime Minister Imran Khan has accepted his resignation. Farogh Naseem said, I have resigned as prime minister and he will continue to serve until the case continues.
“I respect judiciary and judges very much and have no personal grudge against any lawyer, bar council and justice including Qazi Faez Isa. I always made decisions in light of the Holy Quran, Hadith and constitution as law minister.”
