Maryam Nawaz, Mehmood Khan Achakzai, Sherry Rehman and Khurram Dastgir attended the meeting.
After the meeting, Maulana Fazlur Rehman said that the media is performing its national duty today. He said the ruling party says it has squandered its assets. There have been more than one and a half appearances. The government is delaying by filing petitions.
Maulana Fazlur Rehman further said that PDM consultative meeting was held, we will all protest in front of the Election Commission.
He said secret documents and bank accounts were not disclosed by PTI and that they are talking within constitutional limits. We will stay and protest, party workers have come and will protest in a peaceful manner.
Maulana Fazlur Rehman further said that after the Election Commission we will send a message to the Prime Minister’s Office.
He also claimed that there will be a big gathering on February 5 regarding Kashmir, if the government blocked the way, we are not afraid to pick up their containers and throw them.
As per reports, a control room has been set up inside the interior MInistry for the PDM protests outside Election Commission.
Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed has decided to monitor the situation outside the Election Commission. Rashid along with Home Secretary Yousuf Naseem Khokhar will visit the control room.
A draft of the protest demands has been prepared outside the Election Commission. The Election Commission will be asked to take an immediate decision in the PTI funding case. It will be demanded not to delay the decision further.
According to reports, in 2014, Akbar S. Babar, a defaulter from the PTI, had filed a petition with the Election Commission alleging irregularities in party funds. He said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) had received funds from foreigners in addition to Pakistanis living abroad, which was not allowed by Pakistani law.
In his petition, he has stated that limited liability companies were set up in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia and other countries to raise funds for the party from Pakistanis living there, in which the proceeds came from illegal sources.
The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) claims that the party did not receive funds from illicit sources, but documents of all funds received from abroad are available.
The PTI has approached the Islamabad High Court six times to stay the hearing of the petition in the ECP, arguing that the ECP does not have the authority to audit any party’s accounts.
Apart from this, the PTI also filed similar petitions against the PPP and the PML-N in the Election Commission. A special scrutiny committee was set up to look into the matter.
