LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Khawaja Saad Rafique has said that NA-125 case verdict is against requirements of the justice. Addressing a press conference at the Lahore Press Club after announcement of the NA-125 case decision on Monday, he said that a few days ago in cantonment board elections, the NA-125 voters got elected the PML-N candidates and proved that they voted for PML-N on May 11, 2013. “But, despite this fact the PTI defamed me and my party for over two years,” he added.

Saad said that the tribunal had admitted that Hamid Khan failed to prove rigging in the constituency. He said that the verdict was actually about incompetence of returning and presiding officers. “Me, my party and voters have been punished for the incompetency of polling staff,” he added. Saad said that his party would decide whether to approach the Supreme Court or contest re-election. “I am ready for both options as I am a fighter.” He asked the PTI to nominate a strong candidate against him.

“My vote bank is intact and it has been proved six days ago,” he said. Responding to PTI chief Imran Khan’s press conference, he said that Imran was serving as ‘kid of former establishment, which had given him task to make 2013 general election dubious’. He said the establishment had gone but ‘Imran Khan still continued with the task given to him’. Upon Imran Khan calling him ‘stranger in the house’, Saad said that PTI MNAs had tendered resignations from the National Assembly and were no more part of the assembly. “In fact, PTI MNAs are stranger in the house.” Saad said that he was not a ‘drawing room politician’, but had done street politics for years. “I am confident that I will win again from the same constituency as 125,000 people voted for me in general elections of 2013,” he added.
