Web Desk June 27, 2014

BAHAWALPUR: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chaimran Imran Khan announced at a rally in Bahawalpur on Friday evening that the time to verify votes  in the four constituencies was over, Express News reported on Friday.

He warned that the government now had only one month to comply with the four demands otherwise there will be a tsunami on August 14, independence day, in Islamabad.

"The entire Pakistan knows that the general elections were rigged," he boomed from the stage.

Khan demanded that the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) reveal declared themselves victorious at 11:20pm on the day of the elections when only 15% of the results had come.

The PTI leader further demanded to know why there weren't any returning officers under the election commission of Pakistan (ECP) and what the former Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry was doing.

He further demanded to know what the role of Pakistan Cricket Board Chairman Najam Sethi's was during the elections.

Pointing towards the FAFEN report where 90 constituencies electoral list was published, he asked why votes from 35 constituencies were replaced by returning officers?

IDPs

Khan urged Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif not to do politics on internally displaced persons (IDPs).


He said that Nawaz has asked him to visit the IDPs with him but there is no point of them going and taking pictures there. He further added, that if  the prime minister was actually concerned he would have informed him about the operation beforehand.

Saying that the burden of IDPs will fall on Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) government, Khan said that he and his government in the province could not prepare for the IDPs as they found out that the army has launched a military operation against the militants through television.

The PTI leader said it is the country’s obligation to support the IDPs and we should not leave them stranded.

Khan questioned why the Punjab and Sindh governments have refused to let the IDPs enter their provinces.
