Nawaz, Shahbaz should both resign immediately: Imran

July 10, 2017

ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman, Imran Khan said on Monday that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his brother Shahbaz Sharif had no option left but to resign after the JIT report was made public.

Addressing media persons after the JIT report had been made public, Imran Khan said that the Sharifs were looting the country.  “The ones who are helping out the criminal should also be regarded as criminals,” he added.

Imran referred to Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif as Chota Godfather, urging him to resign as well along with Nawaz Sharif. “The Chota Godfather who wears his hat and Italian suits should also resign with Nawaz,” he added.

He added that the report’s findings have vindicated him and finally the opposition’s hard work paid off. He said that his party’s reservations proved to be true.

Imran said that Nawaz Sharif’s name was rightly kept as a Godfather. He said that Naya Pakistan was not made through metro services and buildings.

The PTI chief also paid tribute to the Supreme Court of Pakistan, stating that in the Naya Pakistan, the apex court would spare no one. Imran also paid tribute to the anchorpersons on TV channels who were active in pursuing the Panama papers scandal ever since it had come to the surface. He alleged the ruling party went all out to obstruct the investigation and in the process discredited the state institutions, compelling them to use wrong methods. “I am grateful that at the end truth has prevailed, whatever we have been saying all along came out before everyone,” he said. The PTI chief said that the ruling party tried to carry out slanderous propaganda against him and his family members in order to hide their theft.
