PM Nawaz Sharif must resign immediately, asks Imran
ISLAMABAD - Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Monday called on Nawaz Sharif to immediately resign as the prime minister in light of the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) report.

Imran Khan added that the report’s findings have vindicated him and finally the opposition's hard work paid off. He said that his party’s reservations proved to be true.

"All of our apprehensions have been proven correct," the PTI chief said, adding that the negative role of institutions including Intelligence Bureau (IB) and Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP) has been exposed in the report.

While addressing the media, Khan reiterated several times that the prime minister should resign.

Imran alleged the ruling party went all out to obstruct the investigation and in the process discredited the state institutions, compelling them to use wrong methods.

“I am grateful that at the end truth has prevailed, whatever we have been saying all along today came out before everyone,” he said.
