Non-controversial polls indispensable for political stability: Saad


Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader and federal minister Khwaja Saad Rafique on Monday said that the new government while finding justification for the elections would only waste its term and the nation’s precious time.

Taking to Twitter, the aviation and railways minister said non-controversial elections must be held for the political stability. Referring to PTI chief Imran Khan, he said instead of fearing disqualification and arrest, he [Imran] should face cases in court. “If you are on the right path, then what is the fear for?”

Saad Rafique further said the dialogue with the political parties representing the parliament was the only option to resolve political impasse, adding it’s the tradition of dictators to dissolve assemblies for personal interests.

He said the sole purpose of dissolving the two provincial assemblies by asserting pressure was to avoid disqualification and arrest of [Imran Khan].
