LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan has shown his reservations over the care taker setup, saying elections held under this setup could not be transparent.

Talking to the media at his residence here, Khan rejected the recently held by-polls and said they were a fraud.

According to the law, electoral rolls were supposed to be published three weeks before the elections but they were even not prepared yet, he alleged.

He criticised the election commission for holding by-polls when it had already expressed its inability to hold election because of lack of time.

Sham elections cannot bring any change, he added.

The PTI leader said that the 20th Constitutional Amendment proved that there was an understanding between the Pakistan People’s Party and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz.

The two parties always unite for their own vested interests, he said.

Talking of the corruption, khan lamented that no bill was tabled on accountability during the last four years.
