Imran announces protest rally next Friday on Panama verdict

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chiarman Imran Khan has announced to hold a protest rally next Friday in Islamabad over the Panama Papers verdict to demand resignation of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

Addressing media after attending a shortened session of the National Assembly, Imran said in a democracy the prime minister rules on the strength of moral authority and Nawaz Sharif has lost it, if he had any.

If such damning comments from the judges had been passed in a democracy against the chief executive, he would have resigned himself, he said.

The PTI chief compared the current scenario with the UK where David Cameron quit after he lost the Brexit referendum despite being elected with a huge majority because he lost the moral ground to lead.

Announcing the protest rally, Imran Khan said we are going to hold a public rally in Islamabad next week to demand resignation of Nawaz Sharif.

Criticizing the formation of JIT by the Supreme Court to further investigate the prime minister and his sons over corruption allegations, Imran said how can officers investigate a prime minister when the apex court itself has said that the institutions have failed to perform duties.

‘I ask them for what were they distributing sweets for, haven’t they read the judgement?,’ he said.

He urged the prime minister to step down while he was being investigated. ‘All the judges have thrown away their defence, the Qatari letters were trashed like piece of paper and they claim victory.’

Our demand of Nawaz resignation is very justified, he added.

    So Imran khan is at it again. Demanding resignation of a democratically elected prime minister via in democratic means. It just proves that you cannot teach an old dog new tricks.
