LAHORE: Chairman Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaaf (PTI), Imran Khan has said that election commission is an administrative body not a judicial institution.
Talking to journalists here Friday at Lahore Airport he alleged that election commission was established with the connivance of PML-N leader Nawaz Sharif and PPP leader Asif Zardari that was reason he was being summoned by Election Commission.
Chairman PTI noted that Maryam Nawaz was not capable to hold cabinet meeting and run the media cell despite this she was made deputy Prime Minister. He was optimistic that voters of the constituency NA 120 would cast their votes in favor of PTI on September 17. He said he had gone Data darbar for prayer where the people gathered and took out a rally. Police and vagabonds were threatening the residents of the constituency, he added.
He said Nawaz Sharif’s “Mujhy Kyon Nikala” (why ousted me) rally was aimed at exerting pressure on the judiciary so that monitoring judge of the NAB could be removed. Peeping into past he said, Asghar Khan case was reported some twenty three years ago which was not heard yet. He claimed that 15-20 cases against Nawaz Sharif family were lying before NAB but no action was taken. These are the people who use institutions against their opponents, he added.
Citing the verdict on Panama case, he said a judge in his judgment said that Iqama was a trifling thing but billions of rupees were minted through it. He alleged that efforts were being made to mislead a private tv channel by luring it. “Adyala jail is the real place of Nawaz Shair”, he said. He also felicitated Supreme Court towards the entire nation.
To a question, Imran Khan said he has provided all details in the letter written to Election Commission. He said he has not committed any wanton act. He said whom the election commission has granted powers of court. On what grounds, election commission is summoning me, he added. He said he would fight case of election commission in the court.
