Islamabad: Former prime minister and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) senior leader Shahid Khaqan Abbasi Tuesday said the incumbent rulers expressed distrust in the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) instead of accepting defeat in the Daska NA-75 by-election.
The former prime minister spoke with the media in the federal capital and claimed that the government had kidnapped 20 hosts and voted. He said that the current regime knows in advance the European Community’s decision on the foreign funding case and cannot continue to govern even within a day.
The government tried to steal the Senate elections and installed cameras, he said while adding that Sadiq Sanjrani became the Senate chairman by rigging. Case should be lodged against the opposition as three federal ministers accused it of placing cameras over the Senate polling booth, he added.
Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said he did not know Shahbaz Gill, the Prime Minister’s Special Minister for Political Communication, but he should not have been attacked by ink. The former prime minister added that I heard that this person abused others.
