Urges PML-N workers to show solidarity with ECP

Following the Election Commission of Pakistan’s verdict in the Toshakhana reference, Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah Friday told PTI and its supporters to stop rioting and suggested filing an appeal in the court.

Addressing a press conference in Islamabad, Sanaullah told PTI supporters to “calm down” amid the protests that broke out after the verdict’s announcement. “Do not add to the public’s problem; do not punish them,” he appealed to the protesters. Rana Sanaullah warned the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf against creating a law and order situation in the country.

The interior minister added that so far, only Imran Khan Niazi was held accountable for [his misdeeds], while billions of rupees are yet to be accounted for.

“All the thieves sitting at Bani Gala have joined heads together,” the minister said while pointing toward party members’ frustration after the verdict.

Taking a jibe at Khan, Sanaullah added: “Who told you to steal the gifts of Toshakhana? You admitted the theft yourself and later claimed to have constructed a street with the acquired money.”

The interior minister also urged PML-N’s workers and parliamentarians to hold peaceful rallies in their constituencies as a show of solidarity with the ECP.

“All people should step out of their houses in their respective constituencies to express solidarity with the ECP,” the minister was quoted as saying.

Accusing Khan of “trying to divide the nation”, Sanaullah said that it was the responsibility of every Pakistani and institution to identify and cope with the “fitna”.
