ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan said on Wednesday that they will challenge appointment of caretaker Chief Minister Gilgit Baltistan in Supreme Court of Pakistan (SC). Speaking at a press conference at Bani Gala, Khan capital Islamabad, Imran Khan alleged that arrangements have been made for rigging in Gilgit Baltistan council elections and for that PML-N member is appointed as caretaker Chief Minister, adding Nawaz Sharif has appointed his own umpires to get desirable results.
The PTI Chairman held Returning Officers (ROs) real responsible for poll rigging in general elections 2013, adding he was aware how the polls were rigged. He alleged that, “the real game was played by Returning Officers.” Imran Khan said all the evidences have been collected about rigging in general elections and now decisions will be made in the Election Tribunals. He said he was certain that after forensic report of NA-122, it was impossible for Speaker National Assembly Ayaz Sadiq to maintain his seat,
adding that it will be cleared after ET decisions. Imran said he used to think Pakistan Peoples Party was the most incompetent, but the PML-N has proved him wrong. The PTI chairman said that a report of the audit in NA-122 has been prepared, which is enough to remove Ayaz Sadiq as speaker of the National Assembly. “I am certain Ayaz Sadiq cannot remain as the NA speaker anymore,” said Imran. Regarding the Election Tribunal’s report in NA-118, the PTI chief said that out of 170,000 votes, 119,000 votes are bogus, and that it was better to just not organise elections, which were such largely rigged.
