Imran Khan says his competition is with Nawaz Sharif, not Ayaz sadiq; demands declaration of assets of Asif Ali Zardari, Nawaz Sharif and Fazlur Rehman
LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan said on Wednesday that his campaign is all about exposing complicity of Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), Returning Officers (ROs) and the caretaker government in distorting public mandate.
Addressing the media after arriving in Lahore today to campaign in NA-122, he said that his competition is with Nawaz Sharif, not Ayaz Sadiq, adding that the PML-N is petrified, which is why they ran away from NA-154 Lodhran by-elections.
Campaigning for PTI candidate Aleem Khan, Imran Khan went on to say that, “We will win in NA-122 despite the fact that the umpires are from N-league.”
“Our tigers are prepared, they are aware of the numerous ways that rigging can be done in NA-122 and will stop it.”
Will deploy our people at every single polling station in NA-122 so that no one can rig elections, he added.
He further said that there were 53,000 irregularities out of 184,000 votes in NA-122 and that these are not simply mistakes, but rigging on massive scale and a planned conspiracy.
“Big question is why the ECP has not moved to act against those responsible for the 53,000 irregularities? Clearly because they were complicit.”
The PTI chief added that this is the same ECP that the Judicial Commission declared incompetent.
Imran Khan vowed to give tough time to the ruling party. He expressed hope that his party will defeat N-League umpires in NA-122 by-election.
He said they want an end to corrupt electoral system in the country otherwise corrupt people would continue to return to assemblies for minting money.
He said the PML-N with the collaboration of Election Commission staff and Chief Justice Itikhar Mohammad Chaudhry and Justice Ramday indulged in rigging of elections.
The PTI Chief demanded that assets of Nawaz Sharif, Asif Ali Zardari and Fazlur Rehman be made public.
