Nawaz would not have seen this day if resigned earlier
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leaders Asad Umar and Shafqat Mehmood reiterated the party’s demand from Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to resign from office on Wednesday.
Talking to media, Asad Umar said, “The Premier would not have been in this situation if he had resigned 15 months before.”.
“The Premier would have to resign now. They showed resistance in the matter but it would have been better for him if he had step-down under his own will,” Asad said.
Asad pronounced that, “Finance Minister Ishaq Dar’s confessional statement regarding money laundering came out to be true.” He asked Dar to ponder whether he is eligible to remain the Minister after all the revelations.
“Ishaq Dar spoke the truth in his confessional statement whereas the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) also found his statements accurate in their probe. Why don’t you speak the truth and get out of all this mess. Your statements are only dignifying Imran Khan,” said Asad.
Asad notified that, “Britain’s forensic company declared the documents submitted by Sharif family fake.” While speaking about the Calibri font issue, he taunted that, “It needs intelligence to commit fraudulent act.”
He commended that the JIT members for standing up against the corruption and conducting the probe competently.
Shafqat Mehmood also joined the criticism and said that, “The statements of Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) leaders suggest as if the entire world is conspiring against them.”
He suggested that, “Ishaq Dar was furious with the Sharif family over leaving him in tough times and traveling to Saudi Arabia. Mehmood blamed Premier for not cooperating with JIT.”
“Nawaz Sharif said in the probe that he had only heard about Hassan owns a property. How come he doesn’t know anything about the ownership of properties by his children abroad? The Premier was confused while giving statements before the JIT,” he said.
