ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Tuesday accused Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Sikander Sultan Raja of being a Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) agent, ARY News reported.
While addressing PTI Parliamentarians in Peshawar, the former prime minister accused the ECP CEC of being “partisan and dishonest” and working for Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N). PTI chairman also demanded Sikandar Sultan Raja to immediately step down as ECP chief.
“PTI doesn’t have confidence in chief election commissioner. When the country’s biggest party doesn’t have confidence in CEC, he must resign,” he added.
Imran Khan also slammed Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif for removing Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) officer investigation cases against him. “The first thing Shehbaz Sharif did after becoming the prime minister was removing the FIA officer investigating his case. This is how a Nation is destroyed,” said Imran Khan.
Former PM Khan reiterated the foreign conspiracy against his government took place when Pakistan’s economy was growing and country’s exports touched the $3 billion mark for the first time.
He once again asked the workers to get ready for the Islamabad march and he will make a call in a few weeks.
