ISLAMABAD: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Thursday announced that the party is leaving the parliamentary committee formed to probe Panama leaks and advised all the opposition parties to do the same reported media outlets.
Speaking to media after a meeting of senior party leaders in Zardari House Islamabad, Aitzaz said opposition provided prime minister an opportunity to clear his name, but the government members kept insisting on removal of his name from the terms of reference (ToR).
Asked if forming the parliamentary committee was a mistake, Aitzaz said that it cannot be termed as a mistake as the non serious attitude from the government side showed the true face of rulers.
“Nawaz Sharif proudly said in the parliament, his Bannu and Haripur rallies that he has presented himself and his family for accountability, but now he has been exposed,” said Aitzaz.
Aitzaz further added that he wants to bring all opposition parties on “one container”.
PPP spokesperson senator Farhatullah Babar talking to a private television channel said that the party chairman, Bilawal Bhutto, warned the ruling PML-N that its bid to protect an individual from accountability will have serious repercussions.
Another senior party leader, Latif Khosa told media that he, on his party’s behalf, will file ineligibility petition in ECP against five members of Sharif family as the declarations they filed in the commission were not based on truth.
