ISLAMABAD: Opposition Leader in National Assembly Syed Khursheed Shah said Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) rejects Joint Investigation Team (JIT) consisting of the subordinates of Nawaz Sharif.
Talking to media after a chaos-marred session of National Assembly today, he demanded such JIT that comprises judges of Supreme Court of Pakistan or chief justices of all high courts.
“Previously, we said to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif not to step down. Now, we call upon him to resign in order to save democracy and national institutions,” he added.
It should be mentioned here that Supreme Court of Pakistan yesterday directed to form a JIT to investigate the charges of corruption against Nawaz Sharif. –SAMAA
