ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan has accepted defeat in Sunday’s by-elections in National Assembly constituency NA-120 where Begum Kulsoon Nawaz of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) emerged victorious against PTI’s Dr Yasmeen Rashid.
Imran Khan blamed that PML-N ministers were running the campaign of Begum Kulsoom Nawaz, wife of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif. He took a jibe at the voters who voted for PML-N in the by-election, saying to raise slogan in favour to ‘thief’ after theft at their house.
He said that the PTI could have won the NA-120 by-election but we started the election campaign a little bit late.
Imran Khan compared the PML-N with the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) of past year and said that the people fear the PML-N.
Imran Khan said that the number of PML-N voters has decreased which shows the real victory of the Supreme Court of Pakistan.
Imran said that he has submitted money trail in the court and can’t be disqualified under Article 62. He also said that Election Commission cannot issue contempt of court notice to him.
