While talking to ARY News anchorperson Arshad Sharif, Shafqat Mehmood revealed that the PTI chairman Imran Khan has exhibited enough flexibility by delaying his demand of PM’s resignation until the judicial probe of irregularities in last general election is not completed.
Here it is mandatory to note that the PTI chairman, Imran Khan has earlier been reminding the people that resignation of the Prime Minister, Nawaz Sharif is a must prior to the investigations of elections rigging.
He had also said that transparent investigations of rigging are not possible, as long as Nawaz Sharif is the prime minister of the country.
Meanwhile, ARY News Islamabad bureau chief, Sabir Shakir when asked to comment on Shafqat Mehmood’s revelation, said that he had already told a few days ago that this match is fixed, while the Speaker Ayaz Sadiq was not accepting the resignations of the PTI members.
He went on to speak that all these affairs to provide PTI with a safe exit, were settled during the one-on-one meeting between Imran Khan and Jamat e Islami (JI) chief, Sirajul Haq, which took place at the residence of Mian Aslam in Islamabad.
Shakir said, “Now a debate is underway on the judicial commission, which will investigate the irregularities in elections. If the commission says it did not find irregularities or the rigging did take place, but not to an extent that it could affect the entire electoral result, then this withdrawal from PM’s resignation demand will be the only safe way for PTI to return to the Parliament”.
He said that today’s revelation by Shafqat Mehmood endorsed the backdoor settlement and this very understanding seems to go ahead between the government and PTI.
