Convener Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce & Industry’s (FPCCI) Central Standing Committee on Insurance, Dr Murtaza Mughal has resigned from his post. Mughal has tendered his resignation to express solidarity with the leaders of FPCCI who have left protesting the policies of the group chairman and president of FPCCI. It may be recalled that a day earlier, Senior Vice Chairman of BMP Mian Zahid Hussain, Vice Chairman Saqib Fayyaz Magoon, central leader Allouddin Marri and Secretary General Ahmed Jawad had resigned from their posts and basic membership of the group. These resignations were followed by dozens of resignations by business leaders representing different chambers of commerce and trade association including Senior Vice Chairman BMP Punjab Ch. Muhammad Hussain Zahid. The resignation of Zahid has shaken the foundations of BMP in the province of Punjab, it is widely believed. The move has resulted in a crisis in the BMP raising questions about the future of the group and outcome of the upcoming elections of FPCCI scheduled at the end of December. Dr Murtaza Mughal in his resignation said that he is proud of the services of Mian Zahid Hussain, his humility and his desire to serve therefore he cannot serve in his absence.
