LAHORE: Alleging election commission, police and administration of favouring ruling PML-N, PTI chief Imran Khan has directed his party activists to capture malpractices during upcoming elections on phone cameras to expose the foul play. He asked party workers to take pictures and make videos of rigging during the by-elections and local bodies’ polls and share it with him as well as upload on social media.

“I won’t let them (rig the polls) and get away with it,” he roared while talking to the media after chairing a meeting of party coordinators on NA-122 by-polls. Imran claimed the government is using police and civil administration to press opposition candidates to withdraw in favour of their candidates in LB elections. The officials involved in harassing and influencing his party candidates would be taken to task when PTI is voted into power, he warned.

The four provincial election commission members who were mistrusted by all the opposition parties are still holding their offices, he said, alleging the ECP was hand in glove with the ruling party for stealing the elections. “No order of the Supreme Court bars him from running the by-election campaign. I am not prime minister, chief minister or a minister. I have no development funds at my disposal,” the PTI chief said.

Imran said his party would unveil the facts about corrupt practices of the rulers in Nandipur power project, Quaid-i-Azam Solar Park and Danish Schools as well as Rs700 billion assets of Hussain Nawaz Sharif in London. “I want change only through democratic means and do not favour any system but democracy. However, (naturally) the role of the army is bound to increase when there is no effective and independent system of accountability in the country,” he said.

To a question, he said, “The fear factor of the MQM is evaporating in Karachi and the people are with Pak Army and Rangers for bringing peace in the port city.” Meanwhile, PTI Punjab organizer, Chaudhary Sarwar announced to challenge the Election Commission ban on Imran Khan from campaigning for his party’s candidates in Supreme Court.
