ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Central Information Secretary Dr Shireen Mazari said on Thursday that the PML-N has finally launched its opening batsman in the form of ex-chief justice of Pakistan Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry to target PTI Chairman Imran Khan.
She said PTI welcomed this opportunity “to expose the nexus between the ex-CJP and the PML-N, especially over the rigging in the May 2013 elections and the cover-up that followed”. She said this is what derailed democracy. “PTI intends to restore and strengthen democracy by exposing this planned mass rigging on August 14 through its Azadi March.” Mazari said the PTI had yet to receive the legal notice apparently sent to its chairman, but she made it clear that there was no way PTI and its chairman would back down.
She asserted that PTI has proof “not only of the ex-CJP’s complicity in the rigging and cover-up that followed but also the nepotism he indulged in using his office to promote his son beginning with recruitment into the FIA”. She said PTI also has documentary evidence of his son’s corruption and all of this will be put before the nation on 14 August. Mazari pointed out that the PML-N is getting unnerved “as its lack of an electoral mandate is nearing a complete expose”. “That is why it is using all its team players to target Chairman Khan, but none of these attacks will stop PTI from its commitment to expose rigging, PML-N corruption and the derailment of democracy as the Sharifs’ convert Pakistan into a quasi-monarchy.” Shireen remarked that is shameful how low the PML-N can stoop to try and target the PTI chairman.
