ANP not in favour of PM’s resignation

Peshawar—Awami National Party Chairman Asfandyar Wali Thursday said his party was not in favour of resignation from the prime minister on Panama leaks and de-manded across the board accountability of all those whose names were there.
In a statement issued here, he said that the prime minister had just allegations against him in Panama papers and in such a situation, the ANP feels demand for resignation would be unjust.
Asfandyar said that accountability should not be confined to Panama leaks rather across the board accountability of all should be initiated without discrimination. It was totally unjust to hold only Sharif family accountable on Panama issue. “I cannot understand the logic of ‘Captain’ who blames others as thief while justifies and rationalizes his own peoples’ accounts in offshore companies,” Asfandyar said.
The ANP leader emphasised the political leader-ship for introducing new legislation for elimination of corruption and indiscriminate accountability of all, saying that Imran Khan was demanding consti-tution of a commission on Panama leaks while rejected the same demand on the Khyber leaks issue.
He said that those should also be held accountable who committeed corruption in the name of Afghan Jihad and those who got their loans written off. Who would conduct inquiries on the allegations of PTI’s former minister Zia ullah Afridi and chair-man Provincial Ehtesaab Commission General (R) Hamid, Asfandyar raised question.—APP
