Imran says ready to hold re-elections in KP under army supervision
“No one needs to stage dharna on alleged rigging in polls. I am ready for re-elections in the province.”
He was speaking in the ARY News programme ‘Off The Record’ hosted by Kashif Abbasi.
Khan said he was disappointed at provincial administration for lack of prompt action in the KP polls. “Even in some constituencies, opponents provoked tension for political mileage.”
He plainly denied that PTI interfered in the local bodies elections in Khyber Pakhtonkhwa.
Khan said Ali Amin Gandapur, PTI Finance minister in KP, must tender resignation if charges against him stands proved.
Barring people from casting vote is also another kind of rigging, said Khan.
He reiterated that PTI wanted to ensure free and fair elections. Rigging can never stop taking place if polls manipulators are not held accountable.
Without naming Rana Sanaullah, he castigated that culprit of Model Town incident was made minister.
The PTI chief said all elections in the country, bar of 1970, were rigged.
He said Naya Pakistan could never be built by launching metro bus service, rather strengthening of institutions was the key for established state.
He repeated that Sharif brothers were the ultimate beneficiaries of electoral rigging.
