Chief of Pakistan Muslim League–N Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif has once again demanded resignation from Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani with warning that his government would have to face stiff mass movement within the parliament and outside on the streets.
He was addressing a press conference on Monday after chairing a joint meeting of the party’s Central Working Committee and the Central Parliamentary party.
Hurling a threat, he said that their movement would continue till Gilani was ousted from his office.
If a peon was sentenced by any court, he the result would be his dismissal from the post but here convicted prime minister continued to cling to his office which was a big joke with the nation, he expressed his astonishment.
He disclosed that that his party would kick off its protest in the National Assembly session today and called upon the whole nation to joint their ranks to mount pressure on incompetent rulers.
The PML-N leader also informed that all the opposition parties would be contacted to become a part for the movement, including PTI of Imran Khan, Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) and JUI-F of Maulana Fazlur Rehman, besides real heirs to Benazir Bhutto’s politics like Naheed Khan and Sindh nationalists parties.
Criticizing the government’s performance, Nawaz said that the present government had played havoc with the destiny of nation.
“I thought the country will be put on the path to development and progress but the present government has disappointed everyone due to its faulty policies,” he remarked and lamented that Zardari’s government never accepted the rule of law.
He maintained that the government of PPP always ridiculed decisions of the judiciary but PML-N would strive for the rule of law.
“The judiciary hands over decision in corruption cases but the rulers in bid to hide their graft and greed start ridiculing the decisions,” he regretted and added that they would take up the issue before Election Commission to implement the Supreme Court’s verdict.
Earlier, chairing the meeting of PML-N Central Working Committee, Sharif expressed his dismay with the government and said Musharaf disappointed him and the whole nation when he attacked judiciary but now the present government was also repeating his precedent by not honouring the Court’s verdict and adopting a war path.
He said those who were refusing to write to the Swiss authorities should also answer as to who shifted the money to banks there which belonged to this nation.
Nawaz said his party had to bear the blames for playing the role of a friendly opposition for the sake of strengthening democratic process in the country but the present government had always took undue advantage by violating all its promises and making fun of the constitution and norms of democracy.
