Prohibited funding case: 'Verdict of all political parties should be announced together'
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Farrukh Habib said on Monday that verdicts of prohibited funding cases against all political parties should be announced together
While talking to ARY News programme Power Play, Farrukh Habib said that the verdicts of prohibited funding cases against Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) should be announced along with PTI.
Habib criticised that the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) completed the scrutiny of the prohibited funding case against PTI besides reserving the verdict but it did not hear the same cases against PML-N and PPP.
He said that the Supreme Court (SC) had given its ruling that the genre of the case against the PTI was a prohibited funding case. He criticised that a media house had launched a campaign against the PTI and termed the prohibited funding case as the foreign funding case.
The PTI leader said that they demanded to avoid discriminative action against the PTI.
