PM should resign over indictment by SC: Nisar


Opposition leader, National Assembly, Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has said that Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani should immediately resign his portfolio after being declared as guilty by the Supreme Court.
Addressing a rather volatile Assembly session on Thursday, he highlighted government’s highly irresponsible attitude, and also lambasted government for setting up a court in Parliament.
“After the verdict of Supreme Court, there was no need for debating the issue in Parliament, but which was nevertheless carried out”, he expressed.
He was chagrined, that instead of debating the issue of recent Bhoja air crash, the government endeavored to politicise the issue of Supreme Court’s indictment of PM Gilani.
Federal Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf interjected on the occasion, requesting opposition and official benches to avoid any unpleasant clashes.
Continuing with his debate, Chaudhry Nisar said that opposition had always played a positive role during past 4 years, while official benches were trying their utmost to spoil the atmosphere and decorum of the august house.
He also expressed his anger over PPP activists’ rowdy endeavors and arson spree following the verdict of the Supreme Court.
“The Judiciary was not free during the tenures of Gen Zia and Gen Musharraf, but today it is”, he said, reminding that “Benazir Bhutto had declared Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry as her personal CJ, but today’s PPP led government was resisting the verdicts of that very CJP”, he regretted.
“There is no confrontation between Judiciary and Parliament, only an issue of $. 60 million questions”, he stated, stressing the demand to be informed about the “long journey from a local cinema to massive pile of $.60 million”.
The opposition leader also issued categorical warnings that if efforts were made to ensure the presence of an indicted PM, PML-N would strongly resist the move.


  1. Masses should ask Mr Nisar to leave the parliment along with the prime minister. Please do not make us fool any more. These guys are liars and thugs.

  2. Mr.Nisar! Before Gilani resigns, you should resign both from National Assembly and Punjab Govt.Then, you will not need to request for Gilani's resgination because he will automatically bow down.
