Imran refuses to accept Ayaz Sadiq as NA speaker
Speaking in the NA, Khan said what Sadiq remarked was not at all impartial and it didn’t suit stature of a speaker.
The NA speaker on Monday had dismissed all references seeking disqualification of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, and sent similar references against two leaders of the PTI including Imran Khan to the election commission.
Sadiq said the speaker office was neither a court nor an investigation agency. “The speaker takes a decision based on documentary evidence attached with a reference. Available documentary evidence [in references against the PTI leaders] is enough and raises a question of disqualification,” he added.
During the NA speech, Khan said the speaker’s prestige was affected after his move. In Britain two million people took to the streets and democracy didn’t derail, said Khan.
The PTI chairman insisted that Panama Papers inquiry must be held. “Let the inquiry begin, PM Sharif may turn out to be innocent,” he uttered.
“We are asking for Panama Papers probe and PM is ‘cutting ribbons’.” said Imran Khan while referring to PM inaugurating different uplift projects and overlooking opposition clamors for probe into Panama Papers.
He underlined that there would be no inquiry against him if he stopped speaking against government corruption.
He said holding elections doesn’t mere bring democracy in the country. “It’s institutions that strengthen democracy.”
The PTI lawmakers staged a walk-out from the House soon after Khan ended his speech.
