Multan/ Lahore – Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Jahangir Tareen on Saturday urged the government to hold negotiations with opposition parties at the earliest to resolve Panama leak issue before budget.
Talking to newsmen here, Jahangir Tareen said that: “we don’t want to derail democracy, therefore, the ruling party should sit on a table with opposition over Panama leaks”.
He demanded to launch investigation against Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s family regarding their names in Panama Papers as PTI has clear stance on this matter.
PTI leader stated that Terms of References formed by incumbent government are complicated which can delay investigation.
Responding to a question, Jahangir Tareen termed PK-8 by-election’s defeat as party’s negligence. He said a probe into the matter has been launched.
Meanwhile, PTI leader Naeem ul Haq Saturday, talking to media, said that the party chief Imran khan spoke the truth by admitting that he owned an offshore company, asking the Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to follow suit.
Haq demanded of the federal ministers to first step down and then defend the prime minister. He also asked the ruling PML-N to initiate inquiry against the six PTI leaders, who own offshore companies.
“All of our leaders are ready for accountability and the government should initiate inquiry against our six leaders having offshore companies,” the PTI leader said.
Responding to criticism on Imran, he claimed the party chairman had sold his offshore company in 2003 and brought back all money in Pakistan.
Naeem said that if PTI chairman Imran Khan is accused of being the top-most criminal after he disclosed information regarding his offshore company, then it makes Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif an equally top-rated criminal.
