Saad rejects Imran Khan’s calim about rigging in general elections

ISLAMABAD: Minister for Railways Khawaja Saad Rafiq on Friday said that courts award decisions on the basis of proofs not on the desires of any body.

Talking to media outside the Parliament House he the Minister rejected the claim of the PTI Chairman Imran Khan about rigging in general elections. Saad said Imran Khan was trying to influence the judiciary by staging sit-ins.

He asked Imran Khan to give response to a fact finding committee announced in the parliament house by him. He said had the party been interested in electoral reforms it would have come up with an election reforms package in the Parliament House.

He said that if PTI has proofs of rigging then it should present them before the election tribunals and shun the politics of protest. We approached the court about the constituencies where we had doubts of rigging and they should also go to the courts.

He said PTI chairman Imran Khan was part of the Parliament while on the other hand he is levelling allegations against it. He said a special fact finding committee of National Assembly having representation of all political parties should be constituted to probe the rigging allegations of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf. He said the committee should pick four constituencies each of PTI and PML-N and probe the allegations.
