ISLAMABAD – Awami Muslim League (AML) President Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed is ready to support Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan who is pursuing a vigorous campaign against what he said irregularities during the general elections last year.
“It’s unfortunate that the government is destabilising the democracy which has threats from none other than the PML-N government itself,” said the AML president while speaking to journalists alongside Imran Khan outside the Parliament House. Rasheed called for investigation into by-polls held in Punjab.
“Rulers are afraid of mass movements,” he said. Imran Khan has announced a rally at Islamabad’s D-Chowk on May 11 against what he called ‘theft of public mandate.’ He vowed to show the power of his ‘tsunami supporters’ in the federal capital. Imran blamed the ruling party for massive rigging in Punjab, the stronghold of Nawaz Sharif’s politics.
PTI, which rules Khyber Pakhtunkhwa with Jamaat-e-Islami as coalition partner has challenged results of several constituencies in Punjab and called for recounting of the votes, initially in four constituencies of the province.
