Mian Sahib ! There Is No Tradition Of Resignation In Pakistan On Accusation Or Conviction
Mian Nawaz Sharif is wasting his time and energy to urge PM Gilani to step down. Did any Pakistani leader resigned after conviction before? If you were on his place Mian Sahib, you would have not resigned too. The fake degree holders, the corrupt people who have been accused several times, do they have courage to resign? No, those are leaders of livinmg nations who step down and quit government office if accused or blamed by a common man. What was done with the supreme court under the Muslim league government. Are not all the politicians of Pakistan chips of the same bundle?
PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif said the Office of Prime Minister of Pakistan is vacant after the judgement of Supreme Court convicting Yousuf Raza Gilani of contempt of court, a private News reported.
Briefing the media after a consultative meeting to discuss the post-SC verdict situation, Nawaz said party's Central Working Committee would elaborate more on the matter in a meeting to be held Monday in Islamabad.
PML-N was of the view that Yousuf Raza Gilani is no more a member of National Assembly let alone being the Prime Minister, he said.
All the actions carried out by the PM and his ministers have no legal authority, PML-N chief said.
Threatening to launch an all out campaign against the PM, Nawaz announced to protest at all levels if he continues to hold the office. He said all options are open including Long March and protest in and outside the parliament.
Nawaz said people like Gilani must be punished adding that the SC has declared him ineligible for five years.
Blaming President Zardari for all the ills facing the country, Nawaz said the whole nation has been forced to suffer on $60 million looted money deposited in Swiss accounts.
“If we allow and accept the convicted PM and ineligible cabinet to continue, we have no right to be in politics," He added. "In my opinion if you have the courage to hear , no politician at present has the right to lead the Islamic republic of Pakistan."
