ISLAMABAD : Opposition in the upcoming parliament sessions may try to debate the controversy about removing the name of PM Nawaz Sharif from Panamagate, avoiding to indulge in other legislation business regarding the budget 2016-17.

The parliamentary committee to frame ToRs on the Panama Papers, written-off loans and kickbacks in its third meeting has started facing a deadlock-like situation on the matter to remove name of Prime Minister for further course of action. “This deadlock is a clear message that opposition is not ready to remove the PM’s name from the Panama controversy, as in otherwise situation the matter will be taken up in parliament,”  said Jamaat-e-Islami’s  senior lawmaker, a member parliamentary committee on ToRs, while talking to The Nation.

The time period of deadlock could further increase as the government side is making allout efforts not to frame ToRs in line with starting investigation from Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

“A part of second question of opposition’s proposed draft is related to start probe from Prime Minister,” said JI’s leader.

Other major opposition parties have already made it clear that they have an option to raise the matter of Panama Papers to streets.

PTI Chief Imran Khan, before the formation of the committee, made it clear that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf had all rights to protest in streets if the government would not start probe on Panama papers.

PPP’s Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, a couple of weeks before, had also demanded resignation of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif over the Panama Papers issue.

While the stance of MQM is bit different from rest of the opposition parties. “MQM will be part of the ToRs committee as a party of opposition,” said MQM’s lawmaker Ali Raza Abidi while talking to TheNation.

The upcoming parliamentary sessions are scheduled to meet on May 31 (Regular first day NA session), June 1 (Joint session) and June 3 (Budget session). Though the 33rd National Assembly session will be prorogued soon after reciting fateha and paying tribute to lawmaker Malik Iqbal Mehdi, who had died the other day.

The matter regarding removing the name of PM Nawaz Sharif from Panamagate might be discussed in the upcoming budget session. “Opposition will try to debate this matter in the budget session with same demands,” said an opposition member.
