LAHORE: Imran Khan, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman, termed a findings of Judicial Commission over allegation claims as ‘victory of the whole country’.

“The Judicial Commission in its report said that 35 percent of form XV were missing that means 2.5 million votes record is missing,” Imran said while addressing a press conference in Lahore.

Khan added that if the JC was established in 1970, the same mistakes would not have been repeated.

The PTI chief said that he has written a letter to the Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) to take measures in order to avoid lapses mentioned in the JC report.

Khan said India is progressing ahead of Pakistan only because of a relatively fairer election system there.

Expressing his concerns regarding JC report, Imran said that he was slightly disappointed over the findings of JC which he believed left the work incomplete.

However, he went on to say that he respected the chief justice of Pakistan the way he conducted the proceedings of the commission.

Responding to allegations regarding military officials backing to the PTI in holding its anti-government sit-in, the PTI chairman suggested that the government should investigate the claims.

“For all those who think ISI funded our Dharna, I challenge them to prove if I got even a single penny from ISI,” he said.

“If an army general was conspiring against my government, I would have immediately ordered an inquiry,” he added.

Imran also announced support to the traders strike against additional taxes.

“Instead of reforming the taxation system more and more taxes are being imposed on people which is unjust,” he added.
