Backing the sit-in organised by the Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) on Lahore’s Mall Road to mark the second anniversary of the Model Town tragedy, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Friday deplored that 14 workers of the PAT were martyred two years ago, but justice has not yet been done.
Addressing media persons during a fund-raising campaign for the Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital, Khan demanded Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif relinquish his post until investigation into the Panama leaks was carried out.
“Another Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz member could serve as the prime minister until this probe is completed,” he added.
Khan also accused PM Sharif and his family of being involved in money laundering, and added the government was giving rise to doubts by prolonging investigation into the Panama leaks issue.
The PTI chief said that rigging proved in the constituency of Defence Minister Khawaja Asif where 54,000 bogus votes were cast but it has not yet been investigated.
Khan said that an independent National Accountability Bureau (NAB) shall be introduced in Azad Kashmir.
The PTI chief also criticised the government, stating there was not even a single hospital in the country where Prime Minister Sharif could have been treated.
