Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has announced to stage a protest rally in Islamabad to demand Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s resignation.
PTI Chairman Khan had taken this decision after the Panama Papers case verdict. He vows to continue his demand of PM’s resignation on April 28 by staging a rally.
While addressing the media men outside the National Assembly, Khan said “They didn’t allow me to speak in the parliament…next Friday we are going to hold a rally in Islamabad and we will continue to demand Nawaz’s resignation,”
He added that the comments made by the judges of the top court against the PM were historic. He said in this regard, “Whatever happened in the Supreme Court yesterday never happened in Pakistan before.”
He questioned, “Two senior judges of SC have disqualified Nawaz over dishonesty. The SC has already said that the national institutions have failed to perform their duties so how will they act against him in the JIT?”
It is pertinent to mention here that the joint opposition walked out from the National Assembly in protest after the PTI leader was not allowed to address lawmakers by the deputy speaker. The lawmakers in Senate also demanded the PM to resign and staged a walkout.
Imran Khan commented on this, “What happened today is the reason why I think twice before coming to parliament. What kind of democracy… where I can’t speak in Parliament?”
