LAHORE (Monitoring Desk): Daughter of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz, on Wednesday once again reiterated PML-N’s stance that the premier will not resign and will continue with his tenure.
The first daughter, in a tweet, questioned the reasoning behind calls for the prime minister to step down.
“He will not give it [resignation] God willing! He should resign because not a single penny of government money was stolen during his five terms in power?”
The statement by Maryam comes after repeated calls from opposition parties asking the prime minister to step down following the submission of the Joint Investigation Team’s (JIT) report to the Supreme Court.
The premier’s daughter, in an earlier tweet, had rejected the JIT report. She had said that all contradictions will be contested and “decimated” in the Supreme Court.
The Panama case JIT has also accused Maryam of presenting fake documents to the probe team, which it says is an offence.
