ISLAMABAD: Information Minister Pervaiz Rashid has said that the General Election Inquiry Commission completed its proceedings in a highly professional way which further enhanced dignity of the state institutions.
Talking to different media houses, he said the inquiry commission had provided Imran Khan an opportunity to prove the claims he had been making for the last two years, but the PTI Chairman failed. Pervaiz Rashid said the Inquiry Commission rejected allegations of the PTI in three terms of references set for advancing the proceeding. Replying to a question, the Minister said lapses, shortcomings and incapacity on part of Election Commission were equal for all political parties.
The Minister urged the PTI chief to forget the past mistakes and move forward to strengthen democracy in the country and put it on consistent path to progress and prosperity. Meanwhile, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister Irfan Siddiqui has urged PTI Chief Imran Khan to shun the politics of putting blames on others and agitation and adopt the path of constructive politics. In an interview, he said Imran Khan is in a state of confusion about the verdict of Judicial Commission and demonstrating a contradictory attitude in this regard. He said on the one hand he is paying tributes to the judges of the Commission for the excellent job and on the other he is repeating the old blames.
Irfan Siddiqui said Imran Khan should adopt a clear stance about the verdict of Judicial Commission. He said PTI Chief had expressed pleasure over the constitution of the Judicial Commission and repeatedly said they he would accept the decision of the Commission. He said according to the agreement, he should withdraw all its allegations after the verdict of the Judicial Commission.
