Ch Pervaiz Elahi said that right from the start of Panama case our party’s stance has remained the same, in the TOR Committee also our representatives Tariq Bashir Cheema and Kamil Ali Agha were present, but N-League did not play positive role, on the Supreme Court verdict firstly N-Leaguer rulers were distributing sweets then someone said the verdict is in English first read it, when they understood the verdict then onwards some of their advisors and ministers have started talking against not on only JIT but also the national institutions, Nawaz Sharif has not got “democracy” registered, this is a system, N-Leaguers try to hide behind democracy, if Nawaz Sharif wants then no harm will come to the country and democracy will also function in a better way, they have ruled for 24 years, In Punjab they are in power continuously for last ten years, have they done even a single work for betterment of common and poor man, if they still do not resign and resultantly there is some chaos then Nawaz Sharif will be responsible for that.
He said that there are good people also in N-League, we invite them to return to their home and serve the country together, wherever anyone with Muslim League thinking is present we will welcome in the fold of Muslim League.
He said that for show of solidarity and representing Muslim League Ch Shujat Hussain will go to the Supreme Court on Monday. He said along with national defence we are standing national institutions, damaging national institutions means harming the country and democracy.
In reply to a question, Ch Pervaiz Elahi said that 98 per cent opposition parties are unanimous on one stance, N-League has not provided any relief to the farmers, poor and workers but they have cheated and enemies of the farmers particularly whereas they have also remained silent over Kulbhushan and Modi’s anti-Pakistan measures, now the way Nawaz Sharif is worried then Modi is saying his “investment” has been spoiled.
He said that Supreme Court verdict should be awaited and that will be better in favour of the country and the nation.
He said along with opposition parties we also have good relations with Maulana Fazal ur Rehman, coming days will be good for democracy, nation and the country.
Earlier on through a unanimously adopted resolution in the meeting it was demanded that Nawaz Sharif should pay heed to the voice of the nation and after the JIT Report should immediately resign from the office of the prime minister.
The meeting appreciated comprehensive, investigated detailed report of JIT that after proofs and other documents in the report there remains no doubt that Mian Nawaz Sharif and his family are involved in grievous crimes like money laundering, forgery, misuse of powers, loot of Pakistani exchequer and they have lost justification for staying in power.
