Imran Khan to move court for permission to participate in by-elections campaign


LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan slammed Election Commission for not getting permission to participate in the by-elections campaign.


Addressing a media conference, Khan said that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) ministers are fully running the election campaign.

“We’ll go to high court against it,” he announced, adding that they will expose alleged corruption by the government in mega projects.

PTI chief said he is neither a minister nor has any funds, adding that only he can give the party manifesto and yet is being stopped from campaigning by the election commission.

He said rigging attempts are being made in NA 122 and 154, adding that government’s package for farmers is also an act of pre-poll rigging.

Imran Khan said his party will also expose alleged corruption in Nandipur project, Metrobus, Danish Schools and other projects.

He also announced to hold a major rally in Islamabad against the ECP on October 4.
