ISLAMABAD - The opposition parties walked out of the National Assembly after Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s address.

Opposition Leader Syed Khursheed Shah rejected his speech saying it has created more confusion than solving any issue.

"We had asked seven innocent questions and wanted their replies, but the prime minister's speech turned into these seven questions into 70," Shah said in his brief statement in the assembly.

The Leader of Opposition said that prime minister's speech consisted of such details which were not even part of the seven questions asked by them.

"We thought Nawaz would simply offer explanation about offshore firms and his London flats, but we were again made to hear stories about Jeddah and Dubai," Shah criticised.

“We do not wish to waste the nation's time by resorting to useless speeches”, as the best judge of Nawaz's speech are the people of Pakistan, he said.

The joint opposition addressed a press conference outside the assembly after the walkout.

“Nawaz Sharif deliberately ignored the question about the ownership of the flats in London and the money used to purchase the said property,” PPP Senator Aitzaz Ahsan said.

PTI Chairman Imran Khan said, “Nawaz Sharif did not need to deliver such a long speech. He could have simply showed the documents regarding the possession of the offshore company.”

Showing some documents to media, Imran claimed “the first flat was bought in 1993, the second and third were bought in 1995, the fourth was bought in 1996 and fifth in 2004”.

Responding to the prime minister’s claim that he was not directly named in Panama Papers, Imran showed Nawaz' tax returns claiming that “the papers say PM's daughter Maryam Nawaz is dependant on him, and the 'dependant' owns two offshore firms.”

"How can a dependant own such huge amount of money to buy offshore firms, as Maryam owns two. This means it was Nawaz' money," he maintained.

The opposition leaders then announced to meet at 10am today (Tuesday) to discuss the future strategy.
