ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan said on Friday that Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), under the leadership of Interior Minister Rehman Malik, was incapable of conducting the investigations of the corruption and rigging during the 1990 election, DawnNews reported.

Khan suggested that the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) should take notice of the case and act against those who were involved.

The Supreme Court earlier on Friday ordered legal proceedings against a former head of intelligence and former army chief over allegations that politicians were bankrolled to stop the current ruling Pakistan People’s Party from winning the 1990 election.

Talking to media representatives in Islamabad, the PTI chairman said that the decision of the Asghar Khan case has clearly shown that which party was the creation of the agencies.

Moreover, he claimed that he would leave politics if anyone proved that the PTI was funded by the agencies.

Imran Khan requested the Election Commission that it should bar those political leaders from participating in the next general elections who violated the ECP’s rules during 1990 elections.

Khan further said that the military operations were damaging the armed forces. People should not consider anti-war politicians as ‘Taliban-sympathisers’.
