Nawaz, Imran trade barbs over elections, SSP torture case

ISLAMABAD: In a renewed exchange of allegations, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) accused the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf chief of looking towards the umpire’s finger instead of believing in voters while the latter described the PML-N government as worse than a military dictatorship.

PML-N supreme leader Nawaz Sharif in an apparent reaction to PTI chief Imran Khan’s statement that the polls could be delayed for one and a half months warned that his party would not tolerate delay for a single day and expressed doubts over transparency of the elections.

The two parties were also seen at loggerheads over the SSP Asmatullah Junejo case, with the PML-N criticising the acquittal of Mr Khan and the PTI blaming the ruling party for misusing the anti-terror law to lodge the FIR against him.
