TLP Chief Khadim Rizvi lashes out at Imran Khan
LAHORE - Tehrik-i-Lubbaik Pakistan which secured 2.19 million votes against 2.54 million polled collectively by the five-party Muttahida Majlis-i-Amal has hit out against Imran Khan.
Khadim Rizvi says Imran Khan has no right to form government at the centre as the July 25 elections were massively rigged, and also because the PTI chairman has no past services to his credit that earned him the right to rule the country.
A person who has been playing cricket throughout his life knows nothing about governance and people cannot pin hopes on him, TLP Amir Maulana Khadim Hussain Rizvi said in an interview here on Sunday.
In his opinion it would have been better if a national government, comprising people of integrity, had been set up for a year at the end of the term of the caretakers and an effective accountability process should have been launched to cleanse the society of corruption.
According to him, the TLP won two seats of the Sindh Assembly, although it was expecting 25/30 NA seats and proportionately provincial seats in the first election that it contested after being registered with the Election Commission of Pakistan about a year ago.
Maulana Rizvi said rigging was a collective sin committed by the nation after which it should collectively fear Allah’s wrath.
In response to a question, he said the TLP legislators-elect would not cooperate with any party and, instead, prefer to sit on opposition benches with their own distinct identity.
