Kaira said that almost all the opposition united against the government and demanded PM resignation.
“Please disclose the secret of LNG deal, friendship with kings and friendship with Indian PM Modi as he is murdering Muslims in Kashmir,” Kaira asked Pm adding that bring out all secret from your heart as PPP will not allow anyone to damage democracy.
He alleged that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had struck deal with former president Pervez Musharraf and escaped from the country in the dark.
He advised the premier to take note of the statements that his peers gave before the team.
The former minister claimed that the first family would not be able to secure its dignity if video recordings of the JIT hearings are made public.Kaira said that if any schemes against democracy are being hatched then PPP should be apprised of it.
“We have asked several times who is carrying out conspiracies against you, if there is any conspiracy against democracy tell us…we will save democracy…[but] the prime minister isn’t telling us anything,” the former minister said.
Kaira further said that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz doesn’t need to worry about the democratic process being halted saying “we are here for saving democracy”.
“We and the people of Pakistan are the guardians of democracy,” he said.
Kaira said that Nawaz Sharif should stop looking outward [for conspirators] and should instead pay attention to his inner circles.
“Many ministers are openly saying things…they seem hopeful,” he said.
