PTI's MPA in the Punjab Assembly Uzma Kardar has been expelled from the party for violating party discipline, a notification issued by the ruling party said.

The party's Standing Committee on Discipline and Accountability has issued a written order which states that Kardar's basic party membership has been revoked.

"You have acted in a very irresponsible manner and your conduct is unbecoming of a PTI member therefore you have been expelled from the basic membership of the party," the notice read.

"As a consequence you are also not eligible to hold any post or position at the parliamentary level," it added.

The official notification was issued and signed by Punjab Information Minister Fayyaz-ul-Hassan Chohan.

In the notification, it was mentioned that Kardar is to be removed from the committee with immediate effect.

In the 2018 general elections, Kardar won a reserved seat for women as a candidate from the PTI.
