Awn Chaudhry has resigned as Special Coordinator to Chief Minister (CM) Punjab on Political Affairs. In his resignation, Awn wrote that he was summoned to the CM House where he was asked to disassociate from Tareen group or resign. “My conscience does not allow me to abandon my association with the most loyal member of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) who served selflessly,” says Awn.

As per Geo News, Awn Chaudhry was accused of lobbying for the Tareen group and recruiting new members of the Assembly into the Tareen group.

Earlier this week, Punjab MPA Nazir Chohan, a Tareen loyalist, quit Tareen’s PTI faction, saying, “Jahangir Tareen used me.”
