Minister for Information, Broadcasting and National Heritage Senator Pervaiz Rashid Tuesday said Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has “twisted facts” about recounting in NA-122 constituency.
In a statement, the minister said Khan presented “wrong” facts and figures in his recent news conference at Bani Gala to “avoid embarrassment” he faced after recounting in four constituencies.
“Khan Sahib is giving extremely wrong statements after facing defeat in recounting to avoid embarrassment,” he maintained.
Matter of the fact was that the recounting confirmed PTI’s defeat. “Four constituencies were opened and now everything is crystal clear.”
Rashid said the public gave mandate to Pakistan Muslim League –Nawaz (PML-N) in 2013 polls and termed Khan’s attitude “an attempt to disrupt the present atmosphere of national consensus and unity in the country”.
