ISLAMABAD: Senior Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) leader Ahsan Iqbal on Thursday blamed that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), through different tactics, was trying to influence the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP).
Addressing a press conference in Islamabad, Ahsan Iqbal said the PTI had not submitted record of private accounts money to the ECP, while PML-N’s no account was unreported.
“The law bounds us for transparent transactions. The PTI appears to be involved in corruption in the name of funding,” he said.

He said the PTI’s donation had not been declared and the money had been used privately while the ECP had not been relayed about it. Earning of the hard working overseas Pakistanis had been amassed by the PTI leadership, he maintained.
The ECP has directed for hearing of the foreign funding case against the PTI on a day-to-day basis. Whereas, the Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday asked his party leaders not to worry about that. Imran Khan said that audit of his party funds had already been done and its evidence had been submitted to the court.
The PML-N secretary general said the biggest robbery of the Pakistani politics had been exposed. “Why don’t you present money trail of the PTI funding. If everything is right, then why did you submit an application to the ECP,” he asked.
The PML-N leader said the nation wanted to know that who had funded the ruling party from India, Middle East and America. You blame others of having benami accounts, while 23 benami accounts of the PTI had been traced, he said.
“It’s unpardonable crime for which you would have to give answer. The time has arrived and the nation is seeking the receipts,” he said.
Ahsan Iqbal said said the economy had been ruined in the last 15 months and it had become hard for a labourer to make both ends meet.
On education front, he said the Higher Education Commission (HEC) funding was cut to half hence it was forced to abandon all the new projects. “Our government had been giving scholarships to the people of tribal areas and Balochistan.”
“I suggest Imran’s name for Nobel Prize for saying that when inflation rises, poverty also increases with it,” he said mocking at the PM.
