Imran demands PM Nawaz to resign

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Sunday demanded of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to resign over Panama Papers accusations.

In a live address to the nation at his residence in Bani Gala, he urged Nawaz government to constitute an inquiry commission led by the Chief Justice of Pakistan to conduct a probe against Nawaz and his family in view of Panama papers leaks. Imran said that Nawaz Sharif has lost moral authority to rule any more; therefore he must resign from the post of Premier.

He also demanded the formation of chief justice-led commission and hiring of foreign firms to conduct investigation into the money trails.

He said they demand accountability; otherwise thousands of people would join their march to Raiwind. Imran recalled that he had staged a long sit-in in Islamabad in the past which proved to be a landmark. PTI would not back off. Imran said he will give the government time till Apr 24 to take appropriate action in view of Panama Papers leaks. “I will come out with a future course of action on Apr 24, he warned.
