LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan has called upon his supporters to thwart any attempts to rig the by-elections in Lahore’s NA-122 constituency.

Calling PTI’s candidate Aleem Khan – vying for the seat against PML-N’s Sardar Ayaz Sadiq – his ‘secret weapon’ in the election, Imran said they will defeat their rivals in their bastion, Lahore.

The PTI chairman also accused the PML-N of using Punjab police as its ‘militant wing’.Imran also hit back at those questioning the source of funding of the party, saying the PTI is entirely funded by the people, but asked where does funding of ‘others come from’. PTI candidate for the polls, Abdul Aleem Khan, Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Sheikh Rashid and others were also present on the occasion.

On the other hand, addressing the PML-N’s supporters, Sardar Ayaz Sadiq asked Imran if he is to bring revolution ‘with the help of the remains of former military dictator Gen (retd) Musharraf’s regime’.Highlighting development under the incumbent government, Sadiq claimed that it was for the first time in Pakistan’s history that an investment worth $35 billion was pumped into the country’s economy.
