PTI stages rally in Sialkot over ‘election rigging’

SIALKOT: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf on Saturday staged a rally against alleged election rigging in the history of Pakistan.

Addressing the participants of the rally, PTI chief Imran Khan said that his party would move courts and take to the streets against poll rigging.

He claimed that a historic fraud was committed during the last general election as Election Commission officials said amid the polling that they had failed to conduct transparent election.

Khan said that DPO of Hafizabad ran election campaign of his rival party. He also played an alleged tape of the DPO’s talk during the rally. The PTI chief also criticized the government over the budget.

Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan on Saturday night claimed that the May 11 general elections last year were the biggest fraud in the country’s history.

Speaking to a rally organised here to protest against alleged rigging in last year’s polls, he said the people were looking at the judiciary to get justice, adding that they would be justified to go out on the streets if they were deprived of this fundamental right.

Pointing towards alleged rigging in several constituencies and typing mistakes by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), Khan demanded of ‘the free judges of the country’ to deliver justice. He also pointed out sacrifices given by the PTI for the free judiciary.

Assailing the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) for being hesitant in investigating the alleged rigging, the PTI chief said the government was scared about its future.

He reiterated that the vote went to some while the seats went to another.
