MULTAN: While condemning the kidnapping of former prime minister Yousaf Raza Gilani's son, Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) vice-chairman Shah Mahmood Qureshi said the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) should take notice of the statements issued by the brothers of the victim.
Ali Haider Gilani – Gilani’s youngest son - was kidnapped after an attack on a Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) gathering in Multan.
"If we don't get my brother by this evening I will not let the elections happen in my area," his brother, Musa Gilani, had said in televised comments.
The PTI vice-chairman while speaking to The Express Tribune said that Gilani’s sons were threatening other candidates through this statement, and such talk was irresponsible.
“The PTI consider it as a direct threat to all other candidates contesting elections, especially from Multan,” he said.
He further said that the PTI will not let the PPP suspend elections in any constituency throughout the country because of this incident.
“I will also personally write to the returning officer about my grievances,” he added.
