Bilawal rejects PTI’s report on RTS failure issue

KARACHI: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Tuesday categorically rejected the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) fact-finding committee’s report on the failure of the Result Transmission System (RTS) during the July 25 elections.

“We cannot accept a report prepared by PTI’s own fact-finding committee because PTI itself benefitted the most from RTS crash,” Bilawal said.

The PPP chairman reiterated his demand that a joint parliamentary committee is formed to conduct a thorough investigation into the discrepancies in the election process including RTS failure.

Talking about those martyred during the election campaigns, Bilawal once again pleaded that Prime Minister Imran Khan should immediately order an inquiry into the deaths of those martyred in terrorist attacks.

He said, “We condemn terrorist attacks, pay tributes to martyrs but this is mere lip-service if there is no serious effort to catch their killers. What is the use of these tributes and condolence messages if the perpetrators of these heinous crimes roam around freely?”

“Time has come for the government to provide answers and justice to the families of the victims,” he concluded.
