Panamagate Report: Opposition parties, lawyers demand PM’s resignation


By Muhammad Luqman
After the submission of report of the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) against Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his family, the opposition parties have joined hands to force the Premier to resign from his office.
The opposition parties including Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and Jamaat-e-Islami believe that Nawaz Sharif should defend himself in the court only after stepping down.
Opposition Leader in National Assembly Khurshid Shah met PTI leader Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Tuesday and said if PM Nawaz wants to save democracy, he should immediately resign, and there will be no damage to the system. Shah assured that opposition will have no reservation if Nawaz brings forward a new PM.
PTI’s Shah Mahmood Qureshi said that Nawaz Sharif is left with no moral, political and legal authority to stay on PM’s post after the JIT report. Qureshi reminded Nawaz Sharif of the promise that he made to the country on the floor of the House last year in which he guaranteed to resign without wasting a moment if any evidence is found against him in the investigations.
Lahore District Bar Association has also demanded the resignation of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif within 7 days.
