Shujaat asks EC secretary to expose ‘evil forces’


LAHORE: Former prime minister and Pakistan Muslim League (PML) President Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain expressed concerns over the statement of the secretary of the Election Commission that some international forces want to sabotage general elections and he is ready to give in camera briefing about these dangers to Senate’s Standing Committee on Interior.

In a statement issued here, he said that the Election Commission secretary should tell facts to the people as to which international forces were involved in this evil conspiracy. Shujaat said that the caretaker government should take immediate notice of this statement and the Chief Justice of Pakistan should also take notice.

The former prime minister expressed the apprehensions that the same conspiring forces presently have also made inroads in the political parties. He said that this was not happening for the first time, this conspiracy was also hatched in 2013 when US officials Joe Biden, John Kerry and Chuck Hagel told Ch Parvez Elahi in their house in Lahore that the US would not accept results ‘if your party wins.’

“I have also mentioned this conspiracy in detail in my book also which proves that external forces have been involved in Pakistani politics earlier on as well,” he pointed out.
