Imran will have to give up demand for PM’s resignation: Aitzaz


LAHORE: Leader of Opposition in Senate Aitzaz Ahsan has said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan would have to give up his demand for the resignation of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

Talking to journalists outside the Lahore High Court building on Monday, he said that nobody could forcibly take resignation from the prime minister. “Assemblies could only be dissolved on the advice of prime minister,” he added.

Aitzaz, leader of the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), said that Nawaz Sharif would never resign. “Time has changed and there is no dictator in the country who could seek resignation from an elected prime minister,” the PPP leader said. “In the presence of a free media and an independent judiciary, the government could not be toppled at the whim of marchers,” he added.

Commenting on the decision of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) to leave the Sindh government, he said that the MQM had a lust for power which could not let them rest peacefully.

Talking about the public gathering of Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT), he said the number of participants was not in millions, but they were in thousands. “PAT chief Dr Tahirul Qadri only presented his electoral manifesto in one and a half hour speech,” he added.

He said that the Pakistan Muslim League-Q (PML-Q) was a small party and “real PML workers” were still with the Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N). Replying to a question, he said that there were no chances of mid-term elections.

Senate Opposition Leader Barrister Aitzaz Ahsan sees no military takeover

LAHORE – Rejecting the possibility of any military takeover and midterm election in the country, PPP Senator Aitzaz Ahsan has asked PTI chief Imran Khan to withdraw his demand of Nawaz Sharif’s resignation from premiership.
Talking to the media inside the LHC premises on Monday, Barrister Aitzaz lambasted the predicted outcome of sit-ins staged by PTI and PAT and said that the demand of PM’s resignation was based on their own intuition. But Imran Khan would face severe political damage if sit-ins ended without PM’s resignation, he foretold the newsmen.
Aitzaz said that there was no constitutional way of assemblies’ dissolution other than an advice by the prime minister himself. “And the prime minister is not going for it,” he added. “It is not 1993 or 1999 when resignations had been taken from the then premiers on gunpoint,” he stated. Talking about MQM’s separation from the PPP-led Sindh government, Aitzaz called the MQM a ‘good guest’ that would eventually visit the house (government) again. He continued that the MQM always wanted to be in rule especially the Sindh government.
“Many governments have been changed during the last decade but Ishratul Ibad of MQM is still reigning as the governor of Sindh,” he added.
The PPP leader also suggested Dr Tahirul Qadri to admit the reality after seeing an ‘unimpressive’ public gathering at Minar-i-Pakistan. “PML-Q is a party of few camps,” he replied when asked about the politics of Q-League.
