PM offers conditional resignation to opposition

Islamabad: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday said that he is ready to quit but on the condition that leaders of opposition parties return the money they "stole" from the country.

While chairing meeting of the Federal Cabinet when the topic of PDM’s deadline for resignations came up, the PM offered his resignation, saying that "I will resign tomorrow if you deposit the money you looted, back into the national exchequer,"

He was ready to resign if leaders of opposition parties, particularly Nawaz Sharif, Asif Ali Zardari and Fazlur Rehman, return the money stolen from the nation.

The Prime Minister said that it takes guts to resign from the Parliament, something which the opposition lacks. “If they had the courage to resign, they would not have run away from the country via NRO”, he added.

"December 31, and then January 31, came and went," he said, in reference to the first and then the subsequent deadline PDM had set for the prime minister to resign.

He said that the opposition could neither hold a long march nor gather the public. They have made false promises all their life, They lied about resignations, the PM said.
