LAHORE: PML-N President Shahbaz Sharif has demanded Prime Minister Imran Khan’s resignation saying those who give a free handto rob and loot the nation do not deserve the right to hold the premier’s chair.

In a statement, he said the sugar scandal inquiry report had tried its best to prove black as white by not implicating the most obvious culprit Imran Khan. “Imran gave a free hand to rob national treasure and later tried an eyewash hunt for those who benefited from his decisions,” he said.

He said it was proven beyond doubt that the decisions which led to this mega corruption scandal were all made by Imran Khan.
