“PM Imran was not elected but came into power through rigging,” the PML-N president alleged while addressing a press conference alongside former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, Ahsan Iqbal and Marriyum Aurangzeb.

Shehbaz recalled that on the day of the election for the prime minister, PM Imran assured him that a parliamentary commission will be formed to probe into opposition’s rigging allegations.

“However, three weeks have passed and a parliamentary commission has still not been formed,” Shehbaz lamented.

“We will ensure that a commission is made at any cost,” he added.

Further, the PML-N president urged, “PM Imran should fulfill his promises.”

Shehbaz also said, “I present myself before the nation for accountability.”

The PML-N president further regretted, “The PTI-led government increased gas, electricity and fertiliser prices just 20 days after assuming office.”
