LAHORE: People’s Party leader Barrister Aitzaz Ahsan has backed PTI leader Imran Khan’s demand for accountability of Prme Minister Nawaz Sharif.
Talking to media on Monday Aitzaz Ahsan said that Imran Khan’s demand for accountability is correct.
“If the political workers subjected to state violence on November 02, the PPP will be forced to review its existing policy ,” the party’s central leader said.
Ahsan also said that the accountability institutions are supporting the Sharif family.
Imran Khan led Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) has given a protest call to lock down federal capital Islamabad on November 2, to press for its demand of probe against Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his family in Panama Papers scandal.
The PTI has announced that it will lay siege to the city on Nov 2 if by then Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif doesn’t agree to an investigation into the Panama Papers leaks, under the terms of reference proposed by the opposition, or resign from his position.
The main opposition PPP has launched a two-pronged attack, accusing Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif of aggravating the crisis by refusing to investigation into the leaked Panama Papers, othe other side condemning Imran Khan and his party for indulging in an unlawful act by threatening to siege the capital city.
PPP leaders have been stating in categorical terms that they do support PTI demand that the prime minister should present himself for accountability, but the party would never support the PTI’s plan to besiege the federal capital city.
