KOTLI: Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, Chairman of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), Saturday demanded of the Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to tender resignation till the completion of investigation into Panama Papers revelations.
“Mian sb, you step down as prime minister till probe into Panama Papers and then you can re-assume the office after the completion of the investigation,” Bilawal said while addressing the public rally here ahead of elections in Azad Jammu and Kashmir.
He said that the days of the Nawaz Sharif-led government are numbered, adding that the downfall of the incumbent government would begin from Azad Jammu and Kashmir.
Criticizing the prime minister, Bilawal said that Sharif is not a leader but only a businessman who knows the art of making money out of privatization and mega projects like metro buses and orange line trains.
Calling the prime minister a personal friend of his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi, the PPP chairman said that the country’s foreign policy under Sharif’s leadership also reflects his business interests.
He vowed to stand by the oppressed in Indian occupied Kashmir.
“Whenever I talk about occupied Kashmir, Indian government and media severely criticize me. But I would never stop supporting the oppressed class there,” Bilawal said.
He claimed that the Nawaz Sharif never even uttered a single word against atrocities being committed by Indian troops in the occupied Kashmir.
“Mian sb, you talk about human rights, but you never raise voice against human rights violations in occupied Kashmir,” the PPP chairman said.
He promised to bring transparency and root out corruption in Azad Kashmir after coming into power after winning the forthcoming elections.
