Imran Khan seeks Shehbaz Sharif's resignation over leaks
Pakistan’s former Premier Imran Khan on Monday demanded the resignation of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif after a slew of audio clips related to informal conversations between Sharif and cabinet officials surfaced.
The Intelligence Bureau has been ordered to probe the breach.
“PM Shehbaz Sharif should resign after the audio leaks involving him, some cabinet members and government officials have surfaced,” Khan, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman, said.
“In the audio leaks, Shehbaz is talking about bringing machinery from India for his niece Maryam Nawaz’s son-inlaw (Raheel Munir). If Shehbaz has any shame left in him, he should resign forthwith otherwise we will make him go home,” Khan said.
He said another audio clip related to Maryam Nawaz will soon be leaked in which she is telling her father that Imran is going to be disqualified by the Election Commission in the Toshakhana case for not disclosing information regarding the gifts he received from the state depository.
