ISLAMABAD - In a tit for tat response, Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaaf (PTI) yesterday announced to file a reference of disqualification as member of the National Assembly against Prime Minster Nawaz Sharif with Speaker National Assembly.

"We have decided to file a reference with the Speaker under Article 62 and 63 of the Constitution on August 15 (Monday)," PTI Vice Chairman Shah Mehmood Qureshi said while talking to the media after conclusion of a meeting of party's senior leadership held under the chair of Imran Khan at Bani Gala.

PTI decided to file the reference a few days after PML-N filed a disqualification reference against its Chairman Imran Khan with the Speaker NA.

Imran Khan in his recent interview to a TV channel had said that he would appear before the Speaker if the prime minister would appear before it hinting that PTI was going to file a reference against the premier.

PTI's legal team including Hamid Khan and Naeem Bokhari is working on the reference, which is in final stages now, Qureshi said, adding that the party would pursue the reference against PM filed with the Election Commission of Pakistan.

The meeting also discussed party's future strategy with regard to its protest movement against the government over Panama Leaks and to fight a legal battle against the prime minister and his family for having off-shore companies and allegedly concealing of assets.

Qureshi said that the meeting decided to endorse the joint opposition's decision to introduce a bill on TORs of the opposition and the bill will be initiated in the Senate. The opposition would persuade the government for supporting the legislation in the NA after the passage of bill form the Senate, he added. The leadership also endorsed the decision of moving resolutions in provincial assemblies against Panama leaks. He said that that more meetings with the government over TORs to probe into Panama leaks was mere wastage of time.
