Khurshid asks Rasheed for support against PM
ISLAMABAD: Opposition Leader in National Assembly (NA) Khurshid Shah met Awami Muslim League (AML) Chief Sheikh Rasheed to ask for his support against Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Thursday.
The opposition parties have geared up the preparations to launch mega campaign against the PM after the Panama Joint Investigation Team (JIT) submitted its final report in Supreme Court (SC).
It is to be mentioned here that Khurshid will also meet Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM) Chief Farooq Sattar to agree him to submit requisition for NA session.
Earlier, Khurshid held meeting with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Shah Mahmood Qureshi during which he said that if Nawaz wants to save democracy, he should immediately resign. There will be no damage to the system if he leaves the office, he continued.
“We will have no reservation if Nawaz Sharif brings forward his new PM after resignation,” assured Khurshid Shah. PTI’s Mahmood Qureshi said that “Nawaz has left with no moral, political and legal authority to stay on PM’s post after JIT report.”
“We and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) have same stance over PM’s resign and Bilawal Bhutto has supported Imran Khan’s statement in this regard,” he added.
Mahmood Qureshi further claimed that, “PTI is also in contact with other parties after which joint stance will be adopted.”
