PM should resign before Panama JIT appearance, demands Imran Khan

ISLAMABAD Jun 13:  Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has demanded the Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to resign from the office before his appearance in the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) tasked by the Supreme Court to probe Panama case.

He further said that it was a crime to hinder the progress of JIT probe, adding that the ruling government of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) had only two weeks left.

While talking in a press conference held in Islamabad, PTI Chief recalled that PML-N leaders distributed sweets on the formation of JIT by the apex court, but now they are not satisfied with the probe and make objections on JIT members.

JIT cannot probe properly unless PM resigns, he stressed. He pointed out that the institutions were trying to help Sharif family by forging documents while highlighting Justice Azmat Saeed remarks ‘NAB is rescuing thieves’.

Imran Khan asked to make the JIT report public and PM resign before his interrogation. He reaffirmed that the letter from Qatari prince was a lie as he didn’t come to Pakistan. “JIT is being targeted,” he added.

On a question about Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) Chief Tahir-ul-Qadri’s return, he said he was unaware of his arrival but welcomes him. He criticised Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah for his remarks favouring PM Nawaz.
