Senior Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leaders on Wednesday rebutted reports of any backdoor communication with the ruling party, with Senator Sherry Rehman categorising media reports claiming that the government has tried to contact PPP as wrong.
“It is true that we try to protect the system…but right now the system is under threat from the government,” Rehman said, while talking to the media at the Pearl Continental Hotel along with other party leaders.
“PPP is not stepping in to save any individual. We supported saving the democratic system;PM Sharif is destroying it by staying on. #PMmustgo,” she said in a tweet.
The PPP leader said that the Sharifs could not present any money trail for their businesses. Commenting on claims by the PML-N leadership earlier today that the entire issue is a conspiracy against the prime minister, Rehman said if that is the case the prime minister should disclose whoever the conspirators are.
PPP leader Aitzaz Ahsan also said that the Panama scandal is not a conspiracy against the Sharifs and names of many famous personalities around the world are mentioned.
