Pakistan - Nawaz Sharif must go: Bilawal Bhutto

PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari called for Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to step down in the wake of a damning JIT’s report regarding offshore properties of the ruling family.
In a message on Twitter, Bilawal defended his party’s demand for the resignation of Prime Minister Sharif, saying that accountability was part of democracy.
“Accountability is part of democracy. We always supported democracy, not individuals. (we) believe in superiority of parliament & Rule of law,” he tweeted.
Nawaz Sharif must go, he added.
He said that “Go Nawaz Go” rallies in Multan, Bahawalpur and Dera Ghazi Khan by the PPP are just the beginning and asked Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to step down before every Pakistani shows him the Red Card.
The PPP Chairman appreciated the PPP leaders and workers from South Punjab for launching the salvo against Nawaz Sharif and his coterie who have caused immense damage to the image of democracy and democratic credentials. “Nawaz and company has proved that politicians grown and groomed in dictator’s laps had joined politics for their ulterior motives instead of serving the nation and the country,” he added.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that resignation was the only way-out for Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and asked him to stop weighing in other options of confrontations with the institutions to save his financial crimes and mega corruptions. “Is not this shocking that each family member of Nawaz Sharif fattened their assets by an average of 16.6 during a single and his second year 1991/92-1992/93 in the Prime Minister House as per the Panama JIT findings,” he pointed out.
PPP Chairman further said that Nawaz Sharif had himself promised that he would step down if any evidence comes out against him but now he is reluctant to fulfill his own words when a box full of evidences is made available to entire nation.
He said that PPP workers won’t stop Go Nawaz Go sloganeering and rallies across the country until Nawaz Sharif is forced to resign by the people of Pakistan.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari appealed his Party and the masses to hold Go Nawaz Go rallies in each district headquarters and tell the outgoing Prime Minister that 200 million Pakistanis are up in protest against him and want him to go home without wasting any further time.
Major opposition parties including PPP, PTI, PML-Q and AML have urged the prime minister to step aside and let someone from his party become the leader of the house and complete his constitutional term.
PML-N has denounced the JIT’s report as a pack of lies, saying it will challenge the findings in the Supreme Court when it resumes the hearing on Monday.
