Imran Khan's key aide and senior vice-president of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), Fawad Chaudhry, on Wednesday (May, 24) quit the party in a serious blow to the former Pakistan Prime Minister. Chaudhry served as the Minister of Information and Broadcasting in Khan's cabinet and had been the party's mouthpiece for some time.
Ref. My earlier statement where I unequivocally condemned 9th May incidents, I have decided to take a break from politics, therefore, I have resigned from party position and parting ways from Imran Khan— Ch Fawad Hussain (@fawadchaudhry) May 24, 2023
After the vandalism and violence on May 9 that followed Imran's arrest, there has been serious crackdown on PTI workers. This has led to more than a dozen leaders either resigning from the party or quitting party posts.

ہم نے پاکستان میں ”جبری شادیوں“ کے بارے میں تو سُن رکھا تھا مگر تحریک انصاف کیلئے ”جبری علیحدگیوں“ کا ایک نیا عجوبہ متعارف کروایا گیا ہے۔— Imran Khan (@ImranKhanPTI) May 23, 2023
