ISLAMABAD: Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), Bilawal Bhutto Zardari Monday made it clear that all opposition parties were on the same page regarding the resignation of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
Addressing the meeting of the press participants here at National Press Club (NPC), he said Nawaz Sharif should tender his resignation now because he has lost moral and legal authority to continue as the country’s premier.
About the future strategy of his party, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said in case PM does not tender resignation then his party will chalk out its own strategy.
“We will inform the public about the party’s next step in case the PM does not tender resignation”, he added. He further said that there would be no threat to democracy if Nawaz Sharif tenders resignation.
He said that the PPP has been demanding the premier’s resignation since a while and the demand goes in the interest of the people and country. He said that his party would produce good results in the 2018 general elections.
He also paid tribute to media personnel, highlighting the fact that several journalists had laid down their lives while doing their duty. “PPP and the media have together battled dictatorship,” he said. He assured that he will put forth the demand for legislation for the protection of journalists. He also expressed solidarity with the journalist community.
While responding to a question, Bilawal said if the Sharif family doesn’t accept the rule of law, the PPP will consider all other options.
The leaders of Pakistan Peoples Party have also urged Chairman Bilawal Bhutto to launch train march from Karachi to Islamabad and demand PM resignation.
