PM urged to get support of other provinces
ISLAMABAD—Balochistan National Party-Mengal has urged Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to take the political leadership of the provinces into confidence over Panama leaks issue.
“The prime minister is still in a position to muster support from the smaller provinces, particularly from Balochistan, in the best interest of democracy,” BNP-M Vice President Sajid Tareen Advocate said while speaking to media.
“The smaller provinces have the suffered most during military regimes in the country,” he added. Tareen went on to say that his party is deeply concerned over the prevailing political crisis as it threatens to derail the entire democratic process in the country.
Panama Papers, a trove of documents leaked from the archives of a Panama-based law firm, has named Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s three children among over 200 Pakistanis for owning offshore companies. BNP-M, one of the opposition parties in the Balochistan Assembly, has a soft attitude towards the Nawaz-led government.
