No reconciliation with Nawaz on Panamagate probe, says Bilawal
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has directed party members to maintain a strict stance on terms of reference (TORs) of the Panama Papers inquiry, said reliable sources. The PPP chairman finalized party policy in this regard after consultation with former president Asif Ali Zardari.
It was further reported that Bilawal instructed PPP leaders to stay firm on their draft of TORs.
“There is no ambiguity that the process of accountability should be initiated with PM’s family,” sources quoted the PPP chairman as saying.
Bilawal also reportedly directed for not taking any stance that could give away the impression of friendly ‘opposition’.
