I stand by my words, not going to attend joint session of parliament: Imran Khan

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan said on Wednesday that he stands by his earlier announcement to boycott today’s joint session of parliament.

“I stand by decision to boycott the joint session as nothing new will be achieved that was not achieved with PTI’s active participation in APC (All Parties Conference),” Imran claimed in a tweet.

“But I want to ask how any politician with a moral compass can accept a prime minister who has been caught money laundering in Panama Papers,” he said.

Imran, who has been stepping up his rhetoric against the prime minister in the wake of the Panama Papers leaks, told a press conference on Tuesday that his party members would not attend any sessions of parliament until Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif resigned or presented himself for accountability as per the opposition’s proposed terms of reference (ToR) for investigation into Panamagate.
