LAHORE: Chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), Imran Khan has said that the former Chief Justice (CJ), Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry has disappointed him way more than anybody else, he took suo-moto notices on minor cases, but kept on delaying, when it came to theft of the mandate of the people of Pakistan – ARY News reports.
Addressing a book-launch ceremony here on Thursday, Imran Khan said, 'both the winners and losers of the general elections, repeatedly said that the polls were rigged, when I demanded verification of votes in for constituencies, then I was myself dragged into the courts'.
He said that former CJ Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry took suo-moto notice on minor cases, but when he it came to robbing of the public mandate, then 20,000 pending cases were made an excuse.
Khan said that ideal people cannot reach the assemblies, through the present corrupt electoral process.
The PTI Chairman claimed that if he were in place of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, then he would surely inquire the polling staff of Sargodha that how come 8000 votes were polled in favor of Nawaz Sharif, when the registered voters of that polling station were only 1500.
Criticizing the Government on 1.5 billion dollars issue, Imran Khan said that it happens only when the country is short of honest leadership, where the politicians hide their assets and all their interests lie out of the country.
