A PTI central leader claimed that his party’s demands with regard to rigging probe were lawful and constitutional while a PML-N leader urged the PTI to stop the politics of confrontation.

PTI Vice Chairman Shah Mahmood Qureshi claimed that his party’s demands regarding inclusion of intelligence officials in a judicial commission for the general elections’ probe were legal and constitutional.

Qureshi said that it was agreed by the government and the PTI during talks that every state agency would be assisting the commission in holding an impartial inquiry into the last year’s general elections.

“All the matters had been agreed by both the sides. Why is government misleading the nation?” he said. He claimed that Finance Minister Ishaq Dar himself had proposed the formation of a judicial commission through an ordinance.

“Our demands will be in line with the law and the constitution. We want to make it clear that we will not take any extra-constitutional step,” he said. The PTI vice chairman challenged the rulers to hold a live debate on the issue. He was addressing a gathering at Nankana Sahib Hockey Stadium the other day.

On the other side, Punjab Parliamentary Secretary on Information & Culture Rana Muhammad Arshad said how Imran would bring about a revolution along with the remnants of Musharraf. He said that PTI should accept the failure of public meeting in Nankana Sahib. He said that six thousand people participated from Faisalabad and Sheikhupura districts in the public meeting but the participation of local people was negligible. He said that Imran Khan was disappointed over the number of the participants in Nankana public meeting. He hoped that Imran Khan would soon accept his failure.
