A golden opportunity : Can Imran Khan push Nawaz Sharif to resign?

can imran

 PTI chairman Imran Khan has rejected the terms of reference of the judicial commission and said that the government should decide the terms based on consultations with opposition. Meanwhile, Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly, Khursheed Shah has said that the solution did not lay in the formation of a judicial commission. Shah called for a forensic audit to determine the truth. Meanwhile, PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari called for Nawaz Sharif to resign. The PPP chairman said PM Nawaz should step down in the same manner that he had demanded former Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani to resign. Following Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s announcement of writing a letter to the Chief Justice of Pakistan to form a judicial commission, the government wrote a letter to the Supreme Court registrar in which the terms of reference of the judicial commission were contained. Imran Khan is justified in responding to the PM’s speech, but his repeated attempts to shift the burden of proof on Nawaz is misguided, because contrary to what the PTI Chairman would have the public believe, the PM has not been named directly in the leaks. At this point this has devolved into a tussle between PML-N and PTI about who will offer up a defence first, based purely on ego.What has ensued is such comedic political banter, that one wonders how these men even ended up being legislators for their people in the first place. Sure, Nawaz Sharif would not have been in such hot water had PTI not raised such a hullabaloo, but what is the PTI actually wasting so much of its resources on? Does Imran Khan really think that rejecting the ToR’s would get him more votes, or help him help Nawaz Sharif resign? Is there even an end goal, or is the means the end because the sit-in is the only tool the party has learnt to use since 2013?In an ideal situation, with some brains attached to the bravado, the opposition would have looked to address the entire problem, instead of merely asking for its pound of flesh from the Prime Minister. The opposition would have made sure that all and anyone named in the leaks got its attention, so that its action, against just one man who was not even named it the paper, did not seem hollow. The opposition would have cleared its own ranks, much like the Army just did, even if it was a token purging, to look like it was being accountable (like investigating Aleem Khan’s ownership of offshore companies abroad). By using live television Nawaz Sharif conceded ground to PTI, and PTI could have played it as a win for itself. Either way, Nawaz Sharif may soon be hosting some unwelcome guests in large quantities very soon, and the tragicomedy will continue.
