PPP Punjab has demanded of Shahbaz Sharif to quit as the chief minister after the Supreme Court judgment in the Asghar Khan case. The board has written a letter to the Punjab Assembly speaker and asked him to deliver a reference to the Election Commission of Pakistan against CM Shahbaz Sharif for receiving money from the ISI in the past.
A gathering, chaired by Raja Riaz Ahmad, was held here on Monday. The PPP members also approved a resolution stating that after the SC judgment in Asghar Khan case, the position of CM Shahbaz had become questionable under Article 63 of the Constitution. They added that now he should quit instantly and appear before the FIA team for inquiry.
Meanwhile, Raja Riaz Ahmad briefed the press after the gathering and said the court proceedings have confirmed that Sharifs haven’t only plundered the mandate of the people but also embezzled national exchequer.
