KARACHI: Former PTI leader and member of the National Assembly Aamir Liaquat Hussain Wednesday tendered an apology to all Opposition leaders “after seeing the true face of [Prime Minister] Imran Khan and his cronies.”

Taking to his official Twitter account, Hussain apologised to PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari, former president Asif Ali Zardari; PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif, PML-N President Shahbaz Sharif, PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz, Leader of the Opposition in Punjab Assembly Hamza Shahbaz, and JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman, among others.

“[…] I want to apologise, otherwise it will remain a burden [on my conscience],” he wrote, adding that he was also “extremely embarrassed” for betraying MQM leader Altaf Hussain.

Hussain said: “I am extremely embarrassed [for betraying] MQM leader Altaf Hussain. I am unable to even look into his eyes.”

The former MNA has lately been lashing out at the PTI's leadership, often using abusive words. He warned that due to a complaint filed against him in the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), apparently by another PTI leader, he will now reveal all secrets of PM Imran Khan.

“I will reveal everything now, including details of who helped who in winning the elections,” he warned, saying that he has "more secrets related to PM Imran Khan than Jahangir Khan Tareen and Aleem Khan."

Referring to the Hollywood blockbuster "Speed", he said that just like the movie, PM Imran Khan kept driving a bus at the airport and all the passengers turned into his ardent supporters. 

Last week, Hussain officially announced his decision to part ways with the PM Imran Khan-led PTI, calling the Opposition’s move of no-confidence against the premier “justified.”

“Now that the drama has ended, I want to say that whatever PM Imran Khan did today proved that the actions taken by the Opposition leaders were right,” he wrote on Twitter.

Hussain had announced that keeping the situation in view, he has decided to leave the party; however, the MNA added that the decision regarding who is against the Constitution or who is in favour of it will be taken by the Supreme Court.
