Ahsan rejects Khan’s demand over commission

ISLAMABAD: Federal minister and central leader of ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, Ahsan Iqbal, rejected Imran Khan’s demand to include representatives of intelligence agencies in a proposed commission of Supreme Court.

Earlier today, PTI chief Imran Khan, while addressing thousands of his supporters in Rahim Yar Khan city of Punjab, presented his fresh ‘formula’ for an end to the political crisis, urging government to formulate a fresh commission under Supreme Court for investigation into vote rigging and include officials of Military Intelligence (MI) and Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) in the body.

“This is an illegal and irrational demand beyond our understating. It’s a conspiracy to drag army into politics. The government is open for dialogue with Imran Khan and we have never run away from talks,” Iqbal said while speaking to Samaa.

He said the government has already accepted Khan’s demand for formation of apex court commission. “We have always stressed upon the need to sit on dialogue table.”

The federal minister urged Imran Khan to sever masses in KPK. “Khan should first make a naya Pakistan in his own province where people are disappointed and protesting against problems.”
