Renowned journalist Cyril Almeida took to Twitter to announce that he has resigned from Dawn newspaper.
“I have resigned from Dawn and ended the Sunday column. Am deeply grateful for the leadership and affection over the years. There is no plan to return to writing in the foreseeable future. A break from the media appears to be on the cards,” Almeida tweeted.
