LONDON – Awami National Party (ANP) leaders have strongly criticized the Pakistan Tehreek-e-eInsaf over rigging allegations and unnecessary protests and said that Imran Khan was playing politics of allegations in order to divert attention from the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
ANP leader and former provincial information minister Mian Iftikhar Hussain said that the allegations by Imran Khan were a bundle of confrontation. He said that the PTI leader had given free hand to Taliban in the province, where the militants were regaining various areas.
ANP senior leader Afrasiyab Khattak said that any of the television channels could not carry out rigging in election. Imran Khan was following an agenda of someone else, he said. He also warned that no-one including Imran Khan would gain anything if democratic system was harmed.
