PM should resign than face further embarrassment: Chandio
HYDERABAD: Amid Pakistan People’s Party protests across Sindh against the federal government after Panama case verdict, the party has come up with demand seeking prime minister’s resignation, saying it’s in the PM’s best interest that will ultimately save him from embarrassment.
PPP information secretary Maula Bux Chandio on Sunday said Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has no moral reason to stay on the position and should instead resign rather than face further embarrassment.
He wondered why the Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) was celebrating and distributing sweetmeats, and advised to instead read the Panama case verdict clearly as it has not absolved the prime minister.
He said that the verdict states that PM Sharif has lied to the nation, and two honourable judges had called for him to resign, while three others had called for further investigation.
He reiterated that sooner or later the prime minister will have to step down. “The prime minister should feel ashamed and step down himself,” he reiterated.
“The PML-N has been the weapon of choice of every dictator,” he said calling on the premier to set an example and cement his name in the history of the country.
Chandio turned towards Interior Minister Chauhry Nisar and asked why the minister didn’t say that the Prime Minister has been completely absolved of all wrong doing.
“Their faith is only aroused on the mention of Ayaan Ali,” he said repeating his demand for resignation or running the institutions of the nation.
“Even the Qatari prince might be disappointed as his letter was invain,” he said referring to the letter which was declared as bogus and unnecessary in the Panama case verdict.
He strongly condemned the load-shedding in Sindh which was imposed by the federal government, and said a ‘viceroy’ was sent to head the Hyderabad Electric Supply Corporation (HESCO).
He also criticised Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan and said that change does not come with the raising of a finger, and that they were more concerned about Punjab.
“I advice my friends in the PTI to teach Imran Khan the basic tenants of politics,” he said accusing the PTI of secretly colluding with the PML-N.
