PM Nawaz will have to go as he has no moral authority to remain in power: Imran
ISLAMABAD (Staff Report) - Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has said that Nawaz has to speak the truth and declare his assets.

Addressing a rally in regards to the party’s 20th foundation day celebrations at F-9 Park in here on Sunday, Khan said that PM Nawaz will have to leave the office as he had involved in money laundering, tax evasion and corruption.

“Why he (Nawaz) remained silent over Panama leaks scandals, he should clear his position in the National Assembly but he started levelling allegation against Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital through his minister,”  PTI chief said.

Nawaz had addressed the nation twice, but never talked about his assets or business, Khan added. He also urged the PM to conduct an inquiry regarding embezzlement of funds in SKMCH.

Nawaz said the country was heading towards downfall instead of improving, adding that democracy in the country was heading backwards instead of moving forward.

Khan said that the Pakistani people were very hard worker and honest but had been subjected to corrupt rulers. "The country is running on loans as the leaders are corrupt", he said, adding that the PM did not declared his assets before the Election Commission.

Khan demanded that the Terms of References (ToRs) of the Panama leaks investigation be decided after consulting the opposition parties. "Pakistani nation will hit the roads if justice is not done", Khan said. He added that he shall come to Lahore next Sunday and announce new strategy to cater the Panama issue.

He also announced to initiate anti-corruption campaign in Sindh from April 26 onwards.
