Millions of additional ballot papers were printed during the last three days before election on May 11, 2013, he alleged. He said that bags were not also sealed. Let’s there be no doubt that fraud was found in three constituencies, he said. 

Khan said that he would announce his future course of action at what he called a ‘dharna’ convention on January 18. “Why is PML-N so scared of setting up a judicial commission if it is not involved in the rigging,” he questioned. Nobody should have any fears of our proposal for setting up a commission to probe the last general elections,

He said, adding that there was no use of electoral reforms without accountability of the last elections. The PTI chief warned that government would not be able to run the government if his party took to the streets again. 

To a question, he said that Federal Information Minister Pervaiz Rashid should stop telling lies about the vote audit. Speaking on this occasion, PTI leader Shah Mahmood Qureshi said that his party had demonstrated enough flexibility on the issue. – SMAAA
