  • “Law will take its due course if anyone tries to sabotage writ of the state,” says Rana Sanaullah.
  • Interior minister says he has received reports that over 500 miscreants belonging to the PTI have been brought to Punjab.
  • Interior minister alleges that the party has made a plan of clashes among Pakhtoon and Punjabi brothers.

ISLAMABAD: Minister for Interior Rana Sanaullah Khan on Saturday warned the PTI leadership to exercise restraint and avoid disrupting peaceful proceedings of tomorrow’s by-elections in Punjab.

“The law will take its due course if anyone tries to sabotage the writ of the state by indulging in unlawful activities,” he said.

The interior minister’s warning was also addressed in particular to PTI Chairman Imran Khan.

A day earlier, Sanaullah said that he has received reports that “over 500 miscreants of the PTI” have been brought to Punjab to “sabotage” the elections process.

A plea seeking permission for appointing polling agents hailing from outside the concerned constituency is part of the conspiracy, Sanaullah added.

“Imran Khan has lost elections and is preparing to fight with the masses,” he said and warned Khan and the PTI’s tiger force to remain within the ambit of the law.

Lashing out at the PTI, the interior minister alleged that the party has made a plan of clashes among Pakhtoon and Punjabi brothers. He accused PTI’s Pervez Khattak, Asad Qaiser, Ali Muhammad Khan and Murad Saeed of sheltering the “miscreants”.

Khan would be responsible for the consequences if PTI’s tigers attempt to “disrupt the elections”, he said, adding that the government would not allow them to steal the mandate of the people in the 20 constituencies.

He vowed to ensure fair and peaceful by-elections in the province tomorrow.

Special control rooms set up

It is pertinent to mention here that the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has set up special control rooms at central and provincial levels to monitor the by-elections, being held in 20 constituencies of Punjab Assembly tomorrow.

According to the ECP, the control rooms will continue working till the compilation of polling results, Radio Pakistan reported.

Returning Officers, relevant Deputy Commissioners, representatives of police, Rangers and the Pakistan Army will be present in the control rooms to deal with any emergency.

The control rooms will promptly resolve election-related complaints.

Amid escalating tensions, Faisal Vawda forecasts the political demise of the PTI.

Political unrest is likely to approach, as Faisal Vawda noted that PTI will confront formidable obstacles.

Pakistan cannot support any anarchist party. According to Vawda, PTI must change into PTI-P in the same way as MQM becomes MQM-P.

In his critique of the PTI’s present political approach, he implied that the organization’s latest moves and catchphrases are the result of trust established by legal rulings. According to Vawda, PTI is now in a precarious position because these activities have put them over the constitutional line.

“PTI has been shouting anti-institutional slogans ten times ahead of the court order; they should be prepared for the bulldozer now,” Vawda remarked.

Furthermore, according to Vawda, it is improbable that PTI’s founder will be released from prison. Instead, PTI’s future will be determined by government policies and internal calculations.

He said that the intelligence to overthrow the government is within the Pakistan Democratic Movement II (PDM-2).

Furthermore, the senator charged that the government was misrepresenting PTI and the institutions and deliberately causing uncertainty.

He predicted that the political atmosphere would intensify and that the administration might not abide by the rulings of the Supreme Court, contributing to the situation’s complexity.
