Speaking to the media in Islamabad, IPP leader Aun Chaudhry said he had come before the media to “expose Salman Akram Raja for who he really is” after the latter — a PTI-backed candidate who contested the Feb 8 polls — filed a petition with the Lahore High Court (LHC) over the results of NA-128; the two had contested the general elections from the constituency.

Chaudhry said he was the true winner of the NA-128 seat based on the Form 45 issued. “The Form 45 that you give is correct, but the one we give is incorrect?” he asked.

“I am sitting here today because you have compelled me to expose you. When you talk about my country, I will not stay quiet,” he said. “I have won, and I will claim this victory; this propaganda and these fake results you are spreading, I will not let this happen.”

Posing a question to Raja, Chaudhry asked: “Why was there no rigging in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa? Where you have lost, you claim there was rigging. Where you won, there is no rigging.

“The organised rigging you did in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa will also be exposed,” he warned.
