MULTAN: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan on Thursday said Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif should turn himself in for accountability because he had been caught ‘red-handed’ thanks to the Panama Papers.

“After November 2, Nawaz Sharif will either present himself for accountability or resign from his post because a corrupt person cannot be a prime minister of any country,” he said addressing a lawyers’ convention at the Multan District Bar. “Nawaz Sharif’ stooges want to hide their own corruption. This is why they are speaking in his defence,” he added.

Imran Khan invited South Punjab lawyers to participate in PTI’s November 2 sit-in in Islamabad. He said lawyers had initiated big movements in the history of Pakistan. “Now PTI needs the support of lawyers in this movement of justice.”

Sexton Blake | 6 years ago | Reply The Australian Prime Minister was caught in a similar same way, but it was argued that what he did was legal. The argument is probably correct. Politicians make things legal when they want to carry out shady financial transactions, and afterwords change the law back to how it was previously, or alternatively just leave it. They do whatever is in their best interests.
Moex | 6 years ago | Reply Whatever happens this man must not succeed. If the PM resigns, this will initiate a new dharna culture in this already volatile country and threaten democracy even more. Anyone who disagrees with anyone can simply just rent out people and use mob politics to get what they want by force or any means. Look at bilawal getting new ideas.
