Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan has strongly criticised Pakistan Cricket Board Chairman and Geo TV anchorperson Najam Sethi for his alleged role in rigging the 2013 elections.
“Next time the caretaker chief minister should not be like the one who mended ‘35 punctures’,” he said repeating his oft-quoted allegations that Sethi had helped the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz rig the elections misusing his position as the Punjab chief minister.
Imran said the PML-N after coming to power rewarded Sethi by making him chairman of the PCB. He demanded parliament introduce legislation to bar every member of an interim setup from assuming any government office for two years after serving as caretaker.
