ISLAMABAD – Central Information Secretary of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI), Dr Shireen Mazari, on Thursday stated that the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) has finally launched its opening batsman in the shape of former chief justice Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry to target PTI chief Imran Khan.
In a press release, the PTI leader stated that “PTI welcomed this opportunity to expose the nexus between the ex-CJ and the PMLN especially over the rigging of the May 2013 election and the cover-up that followed.”
She said PTI wants to restore and strengthen democracy by exposing last year’s planned mass rigging on August 14 through its Azadi March.
Mazari said the PTI had yet to receive the legal notice apparently sent to its Chairman, but she made it clear that there was no way PTI and its Chairman would back down.
She further stated that PTI has proof not only of the ex-CJ’s complicity in the rigging and cover-up that followed but also the nepotism he indulged in using his office to promote his son beginning with recruitment into the FIA. PTI also has documentary evidence of his son’s corruption.
“All of this will be put before the nation on 14 August,” she added.
Mazari claimed that the PMLN and its partner the ex-CJ only bolstered the belief, not only within the PTI but also across the nation, that the PMLN was guilty of stealing the electoral mandate through rigging.
