25 April, 2017
LAHORE: Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Ameer Sirajul Haq and Pakistan Muslim League-Q (PML-Q) President Ch Shujaat Hussain have called upon the Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to resign from his office to ensure a transparent and impartial investigation against him, saying that this was essential for the dignity of Pakistan and the nation.
The two leaders were talking to the media after the visit of a delegation of the recently formed four party alliances to Mansoora on Monday. The delegation included Khuram Nawaz Gandapur, Kamil Ali Agha, Asad Abbas and others.
The two sides discussed at length the situation arising out of the Supreme Court verdict in the Panama case. The JI chief told the media after the meeting that the prime minister's sticking to his office despite being declared guilty by two SC judges and as an accused by the other three judges was the height of stubbornness. He said that the apex court decision had shown a way to the nation for wiping out corruption.
He said that the entire opposition had demanded the resignation of the Nawaz Sharif, and the prime minister would have to step down in the long run. However, he said that if the prime minister voluntarily resigned, this would the respectable course for him.
Ch Shujaat told the media that all the five judges of the bench had held the prime minister an accused and there was no option for him to remain in his office. On the occasion, the JI chief announced the formation of a committee for working relationship with the four parties' alliance.
