ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan returned to the parliament on Monday after a boycott of almost seven months but maintained that this is a rigging-hit parliament.

The PTI chief said that he still stands by his words about the parliament, ‘this is a rigging-hit parliament’, said Imran while talking to the media.

Khan also added that he would present the point of his party on the Yemen crisis during the session.

PTI lawmakers had resigned from the National and the provincial assemblies in August last year during the 126-day long sit in. The sit-in was to protest against the alleged rigging in the 2013 general elections.

PTI alleged that its mandate was stolen by the ruling party and demanded resignation of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, in addition they also demanded an audit of the election.

Khan announced the return of his party to the parliament on Sunday after the government accepted his demand of a judicial commission to probe the alleged rigging in the 2013 election.

Talking about the Yemen crisis, the PTI chief said that Pakistan should not become a party in the Saudi-Yemen conflict. He added that Pakistan has already suffered a lot by interfering in the Soviet-Afghan and US-Afghan war in the past.
