LAHORE – The Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s daughter, Maryam Nawaz, on Wednesday once again reiterated PML-N’s stance that the premier will not resign and will continue with his tenure.
Maryam Nawaz, in a tweet, questioned the reasoning behind calls for the prime minister to step down.
“He will not give it [resignation] God willing! Should he resign because not a single penny of government money was stolen during his five terms in power?”
نہیں دیں گے انشاءاللہ ! استعفی اس لئے دیں کہ نواز شریف کے پانچوں ادوار میں ان کیخلاف ایک بھی سرکاری پیسے کی خرد برد ثابت نہیں ہو سکی؟ https://t.co/XHdT8qBXku

The statement by Maryam comes after repeated calls from opposition parties asking the prime minister to step down following the submission of the Joint Investigation Team’s (JIT) report to the Supreme Court.
