Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Parliamentary Leader in the Sindh Assembly Khurrum Sher Zaman submitted a resolution today (Tuesday) condemning the appointment of Syed Mohsin Raza Naqvi as caretaker Chief Minister of Punjab.Mr. Sher Zaman believes the purpose of a caretaker set-up is to hold fair and free elections and that PTI recommended appropriate names for the non-partisan slot of caretaker Chief Minister Punjab.
The resolution points out that Mr. Naqvi is not a neutral person, as he played a significant role in the regime change operation that ousted former Prime Minister Imran Khan through a vast conspiracy which occurred in April 2022.
He was a key facilitator who was being used by Asif Ali Zardari and Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif.Also, the House through the resolution asks how Mohsin Naqvi can be a neutral caretaker Chief Minister when his television news channel is a propaganda machine against Imran Khan and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).Mr. Sher Zaman believes that this appointment also reflects the continued bias of the ECP against former Prime Minister Imran Khan and the PTI.
In the resolution, the House questions the integrity and ability of the ECP to hold free and fair elections anywhere in this country.Furthermore, the public record shows that Mr. Naqvi has done a voluntary return deal with the National Accountability Bureau, which disqualifies him from being the caretaker Chief Minister. According to a Supreme Court of Pakistan decision in the suo moto case no 17/2016, states that in a case of voluntary return, a person cannot hold any public office at the federal or provincial level nor in any state organization.The resolution concludes with a demand for Mr. Naqvi’s resignation or his immediate removal as caretaker Chief Minister of Punjab.
