ISLAMABAD: Reacting to the Election Commission of Pakistan’s verdict to disqualify him in the Toshakhana reference, PTI Chairman and former prime minister Imran Khan Friday said he will challenge the decision.
“I already knew about the disqualification,” he said while alleging the Chief Election Commissioner Sikandar Sultan Raja of being “biased.”
In a pre-recorded message, Khan said he will approach the court against ECP’s verdict and blamed the CEC chief for issuing verdicts against the PTI.
He claimed that the CEC was the coalition government’s man.
“I told everyone last night about the result [disqualification],” Khan said, repeating that he knew about the ECP’s decision beforehand.
“For as long as I’m alive, I will fight these thieves,” Khan said, alleging the ECP of being a mafia.
“The mafia is trying to end Pakistan’s biggest party,” he remarked.
The PTI chief’s address comes after he was disqualified by the ECP in the Toshakhana case against him in which he has been accused of stealing gifts given to the government of Pakistan and selling them off in the name of charity.
