Bilawal didn’t demand PM’s resignation: Rehman Malik

LONDON: Senior Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) leader and close aide to Asif Ali Zardari, Rehman Malik on party chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has so far not demanded resignation from Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

Contrary to Malik’s statement Bilawal in his tweet had last month asked the prime minister to present himself before parliament and “follow his own advice and resign.”

“Future of democracy is linked with the parliament house. Panama Leaks issue should be resolved in parliament. If parliament is not used for resolution of issues then lock it,” Rehman Malik further said while addressing a press conference in London.

Mr Malik also claimed that Bilawal and former president and co-chairperson of PPP Asif Ali Zardari are on the same page on the issue of Panama Papers and resignation of the prime minister.

 Zardari has said he was in favor of democracy, he said.

While commenting on the opposition’s walk out from the parliament on Monday, Malik said it was better if Leader of Opposition in National Assembly Khursheed Shah had spoken some more in the parliament after the PM had made his speech. “While, I could not understand why Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Imran Khan walked out of the House.”

However, he said, let’s be part of the solution now, not part of the problem. Panama Papers leak had become issue of the whole nation. So, the nation should also have its input in its solution, he said adding that he would come up in a few days with a review report on Panamagate.
