GUJRANWALA - PML-N MNA Daniyal Aziz Saturday said the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) report had rejected the PTI’s election rigging allegations in NA-122 constituency.
Addressing a news conference here accompanied by PML-N leader Zahid Hamid, he said that NADRA had in fact validated the stance of Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N).
According to the report, he said no used and un-used counterfoils were found, which had not been allocated to the constituency, adding that over 73,000 thumb impressions of voters were matched with their fingerprint data with NADRA.
Similarly, the detailed decision of Election Tribunal about PTI’s rigging allegation in NA-125 further endorsed PML-N’s stand, turning down the PTI’s charges of rigging.
The tribunal in its judgement, he said, categorically stated that it found no evidence of rigging by the winning candidate or his party workers. There was nothing which could be accepted as proof, he added.
Daniyal said PTI Chairman Imran, during his 126-day sit-in, had misled the people by giving wrong statements that the ballot bags of NA-122 were missing.
He said the bags of all 270 polling stations of the constituency were in custody of the polling staff and even not a single one was missing. “All bags containing ballot papers are available in NA-122,” he added.
He said the national economy suffered billions of rupees loss due the PTI’s sit-in it had staged for illegal and unconstitutional demands.
Daniyal advised the PTI leadership to avoid impeding the historic $46 billion Chinese investment in the country.
He said the Chinese investment would usher in a new era of progress and development in the country and the PTI could not digest it as its credit went to the PML-N government.
He said the PTI feared that if the projects initiated in collaboration with China were successfully executed and timely completed, it would be difficult for Imran Khan to achieve his agenda.
Daniyal said the PTI leadership should avoid telling lies and misleading the public, adding that it could not produce any solid evidence before the Judicial Commission probing the alleged rigging in the general election 2013.
