Pakistan Observer - - 07 - STAFF RE­PORTER

IS­LAM­ABAD—Pak­istan Mus­lim League-N lead­ers Da­nial Aziz and Tariq Fazal Chaud­hary on Satur­day said that the ac­cu­sa­tion of steal­ing the elec­tions was a con­spir­acy held in the past against the party and that the sit-in or­gan­ised by Pak­istan Tehreek-e-In­saf was against na­tional devel­op­ment and not the gov­ern­ment.

Ad­dress­ing a press con­fer­ence, Da­nial Aziz said that the ac­cu­sa­tions lev­eled by former Ad­di­tional Sec­re­tary Elec­tion Com­mis­sion of Pak­istan Afzal Khan against ECP mem­ber Jus­tice Riaz Kayani and former Chief Jus­tice of Pak­istan Iftikhar Chaud­hary were noth­ing more than a con­spir­acy to de­stroy the gov­ern­ment’s man­date.

He ac­cused that PTI’s sit-in was not against rig­ging in the general elec­tions but was tar­geted to­wards the coun­try’s devel­op­ment and to place hur­dles in the Chi­nese pres­i­dent’s visit to Pak­istan.

He fur­ther stated that PTI Chair­man Im­ran Khan him­self said that the al­le­ga­tion of ’35 punc­tures’ was a po­lit­i­cal state­ment. “Im­ran Khan made the con­spir­acy of the sit-in to cre­ate un­rest in the mind­sets of the peo­ple”, Da­nial said, adding that the at­tack on the Prime Min­is­ter House proved that the sit-in was or­gan­ised to ham­per na­tional pros­per­ity.

Tariq Fazal said that ef­forts were made in the past to over­run the cap­i­tal by lev­el­ling ac­cu­sa­tions of rig­ging re­sult­ing in the coun­try’s devel­op­ment get­ting dragged back­wards.

He added that at­tempts are be­ing made to repeat the en­tire sce­nario and to push the coun­try and the gov­ern­ment back­ward by us­ing the cover of the Panama Leaks is­sue.
