ISLAMABAD:(APS)April 10, 2016- Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan on Sunday, in a live address to the nation, demanded that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s government form an inquiry commission led by the Chief Justice of Pakistan to probe the premier and his family following the startling revelations made in the Panama data leaks.
The PTI chief said he will give the government time till Apr 24 – his party’s 20th foundation day – to take appropriate action, after which he will announce a future course of action.
“We give you time till Apr 24 to form a commission on these lines. If the rest of the world is investigating, we will give them the opportunity to take action. I will come out with a future course of action on Apr 24.”
This is the time to stand up. I promise my country that I will not step back this time. The dharna had to be abandoned because of an incident [Army Public School attack] but I promise my countrymen I will not back down this time. If need be we will go to Raiwind and stage sit-ins there.”
Presenting a charge sheet against the premier including allegations of “corruption, money laundering, tax evasion and perjury,” Imran Khan demanded that Nawaz Sharif resign as the prime minister of Pakistan.
“Given the seriousness of these allegations, Nawaz Sharif has lost the moral authority to rule.
“They [the government] are not talking about the serious allegations against them but have taken to attacking Shaukat Khanum hospital. Will our institutions silently observe all of this? Where is the FBR, the FIA, NAB?”
