KARACHI: Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP) chief Mustafa Kamal on Tuesday also called for the resignation of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif after a damning Joint Investigation Team (JIT) report was presented in the Supreme Court.
Addressing a press conference at the Pakistan House, the PSP chief said that a delay in resignation would harm the democracy in the country.
“If Nawaz Sharif defends himself while holding the office (of the prime minister), it will affect the country and democracy,” he said.
Kamal also extended an olive branch to the Mutahida Quami Movement – Pakistan (MQM-P) chief Farooq Sattar to join hands and serve the public.
“I invite Farooq Sattar and the entire leadership of MQM-P to comw join hands so we can serve the public together,” he added.
He said that the Pakistan People’s Party is benefiting from the current political scenario in the city, which is evident as PPP candidate Saeed Ghani won the recent by-polls for PS114 constituency by a margin of over 5000 votes.
He said that it was not possible for the MQM-P to support the party founder after August 22 speech, and they were saying the same things which he had said over a year ago.
“Let’s work for the people living in this city by chalking out a common strategy,” he stated.
“I want everyone present here to bear witness that I’m extending a hand of friendship to the MQM-P.”
