ISLAMABAD: Information Minister Pervaiz Rashid has said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chief Imran Khan has opted to flee from the elections while nominating other candidates to contest the by-elections.
In a statement he said, Imran Khan has become frustrated after the announcement of by-elections in the two constituencies of NA-122, Lahore and NA-154-Lodhran.
He said Imran Khan has fled from the arena after giving a challenge to Prime Minister Mohammad Nawaz Sharif for contesting elections against him from Lahore.
Posing a question, the Minister said how a person, defeated by a soldier of Nawaz Sharif could dare to challenge the thrice elected Prime Minister. He said Imran Khan had barely managed to become only MNA that too with great difficulty.
