Delay in decision to resign will only invite crisis: Bilawal advises PM
ISLAMABAD: Demanding the prime minister to resign following the findings of Joint Investigation Report probing his offshore companies, Chairman Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Monday said any delay in this regard would only invite crisis, ARY News reported.
Bilawal said that the time for taking correct political decisions was short. He advised Prime Minister Mian Nawaz Sharif to resign forthwith.
“Decision delayed is not a problem avoided; it is a crisis invited”, he said in a statement released by Bilawal House in Karachi.
The PPP believes that the JIT report submitted before the Supreme Court on Monday starkly concludes that the PM has failed to justify assets and the means of income. After which Nawaz has totally lost moral and political authority to continue in office and must therefore resign, said the statement.
The PPP chairman said that two honorable judges of the initially formed 5-member bench of the SC had already pronounced guilty verdict against the prime minister.
While, the remaining three honorable judges did not disagree with the findings of the two honorable judges but only called for further investigations through a JIT, he said.
As a result of the JIT’s confirmation of a vast and inexplicable gap between known sources of income and the wealth accumulated by the Sharifs there was no other option for the PM but to resign before he was formally convicted by the top court.
The PPP also rejected the notion that the current situation posed any threat to the democratic system, he said.
