Imran warns of bloodshed if Pak polls are rigged
Islamabad: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan has warned that any attempt of rigging during the elections would lead to bloodshed across the country.
He made the warning while incorporating several former Parliamentarians and district leaders into his PTI Party, who belong to District Sheikhupura, Nankana Sahib and Jaranwala.
Prominent among those who joined the PTI include former member National and Provincial Assemblies, Muhammad Saeed Virk, Mian Khalid Mehmood, Shahid Manzoor Gill, Abdul Rasheed Dogar, Ghulam Haider Bari, Engineer Muhammad Bilal Virk, Tahir Memood Gill, Iftikhar Dogar and dozens of former Nazimeen and Naib Nazimeen, The Nation reports.
“I don’t see fair and transparent conduct of next elections under President Asif Zardari and there will be a massive bloodshed if any bid is made to rig the polls,” he said.
Talking about opposition to the old faces among the party ranks, Imran assured that they, whom he termed as ‘electables’, can never overshadow the role of the founding members and core activists of the party.
“Old faces are political heavyweights, however, I will not let any heavyweight to hijack the party,” Imran added.
