Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Monday said Prime Minster Yousuf Raza Gilani should resign from his post after indictment with contempt charges.

Talking to media in Karachi, Khan said that PTI was standing with the Supreme Court to implement the orders. He said no moral justification is left for PM Gilani to stay in his office after he was indicted by the apex court.

Khan said, “What moral justification does Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani has after being indicted?"

"The Supreme Court is operating cautiously in all its proceedings, so rather than pressurizing it, you (Gilani) should resign as there is no justification for you (Gilani) to continue as the prime minister of Pakistan," Imran Khan said.

He said that democracy is governed by "morality, not force," as force "remains with the armed forces."

"Why was this contempt done?" Imran Khan questioned. "Was this done to benefit or to serve the people of Pakistan? No. This was done only to guard the plundered money in President Asif Ali Zardari's Swiss accounts."

Imran Khan said that Gilani will not be able to take any action against anybody who is facing contempt charges. "You set an example for the people to follow. If Gilani has been indicted with contempt charges, how can he in the future question somebody who is found in contempt to the court?"
