KARACHI: Aam Log Party Chairman Justice (retd) Wajihuddin Ahmed has said that the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) has levelled serious allegations against Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his family in the Panama case and it is possible that the Supreme Court may disqualify the PM under Article 62-B of the Constitution.

“If Nawaz is held accountable, then so will Asif Zardari and Imran Khan,” he said while addressing a condolence reference on the first death anniversary of Meraj Muhammad Khan at National Institute of Labour Administration and Training on Sunday.

Ahmed said, “Smaller parties should fill in the expected political gap that will be produced with the accountability of larger parties.”

The country needs democracy according to the vision and manifesto of Meraj, who was the real leader of the middle class segment of the population.

He said Meraj spent his whole life struggling for the rights of the oppressed and deprived classes of society.

Praising Meraj for being an honest man, who never compromised on his principles, he said that 99 per cent of those in parliament and local governments do not represent people.

He said his party was preparing for the next election according to the thoughts of Meraj. The political situation suggests that elections could be held before their stipulated time, he said, adding that his party will give tickets to common people, peasants and the poor.

Addressing the gathering, Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) MNA Kishwar Zehra said, “Services of Meraj will always be remembered.”

Khaqan Muhammad Khan, son of Meraj, thanked the party for holding reference in the memory of his father.

A resolution passed by the participants of the meeting stated that Meraj’s mission would continue.

Secretary General of Aam Log Party, Azhar Jameel said, “Meraj never accepted defeat from dictators in his long political career.”

Awami Workers Party Senior Vice President Yousaf Masti Khan, PPP leader Habibuddin Junaidi, and labour leader Azizul Hasan, along with others, also addressed the gathering.

Other resolutions passed unanimously called for an independent foreign policy, solution to Kashmir issue according to the aspirations of the Kashmiri people, agreement between the Afghan government and Taliban where Pakistan has a positive role, reforms in all institutions, immediate meeting of the parliamentary and non-parliamentary leadership to turn the National Action Plan into a full coordinated effort and immediate steps to eradicate terrorism, extremism and corruption.

    All of man’s battles from the battle fields of Arabia to the citadels of Europe & elsewhere, have not been for justice but for Power.

    Everyone should be held accountable and punished for corruption and all other crimes. Sharifs crimes are proven so they should be punished. Imran is already in courts, only ECP is politically targeting him because Sharif’s influence and mafia.
    The Case against Imran in SC is underway, IK will take decision positively even if its against him.
    However the amount of corruption PPP and PMLN is unimaginable and uncountable. I would have thrown them out of country for lifetime. Not only me, its the wish of every Pakistani who is not supprting him. 70 – 80% of Pakistan is against these goons. Rest are elites/paindo jageedar and chaudhris who are benefiting from their corruption that’s why they won’t say it.Recommend

    In my considered view, Imran Khan, Altaf Hussain and the Zardaris are all unfit to wield authority.
    Within PPP at least there are some other stalwarts in the wings, competent women and men who can bring this party back to life to represent common people, but dynastic politicking bars progress.
    We have clear headed individual heroes like Jibran Nasir but voters hardly ever follow the brave and the true. They prefer liars and cowards.
    One thing is certain, we will deserve whoever we get while our real rulers continue to remain unchanged and now unchallenged.Recommend
