LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman has said his party is well-prepared to win the upcoming by-poll in NA-122, Lahore by “defeating rigging”.

“I have seen the passion of people who have now been awakened. We will defeat election rigging and celebrate the beginning of a new Pakistan on the night of October 11,” Imran said while addressing the election rally in Samanabad, Lahore on Sunday evening.

On October 11 you shall come out to vote and defeat these riggers! @ImranKhanPTI #PTIforNA122

The PTI chairman alleged the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) government was trying to rig the by-election in Lahore through women polling stations for which the PTI had also braced to take necessary actions.

He called upon the PTI’s women wing to fight rigging this time.

“They have planned to rig the election in women polling stations. My tigresses, be prepared as you all have to stop this. Be present in the stations,” Imran advised his female members.

Imran said it was also exposed that PML-N will try to rig the election while the ballots are being moved to the returning officers.

“We want an army official to accompany the ECP officials when the boxes are being transferred to the ROs,” he said.

Polling for NA-122, Lahore, is due on October 11 and the PTI has fielded former provincial minister Abdul Aleem Khan against PML-N’s Ayaz Sadiq.

Imran also criticised the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), saying the by-election was being carried out once again under supervision of the flawed system that held the ‘rigged elections’ in 2013.

“I waited for two and a half years to get justice and what was revealed after that? Out of 184,000 votes 53,000 were bogus but not a single person has been indicted in this crime,” Imran said while lamenting that the same member of ECP Punjab was arranging the NA-122 by-election.

He said there was a need to change the system.

“Under this election system educated youngsters like you all cannot participate in the polls,” he said.

The PTI chairman also dwelt on the rampant corruption in Punjab and said around 180 cases were still pending with the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

“Of 180 cases, 12 are against Nawaz Sharif but since the prime minister had chosen the NAB chairman on his own, the cases have not been resolved,” he alleged.
