IRI was a paid survey by PMLN, alleges Khan

ISLAMABAD: Chairman Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan on Thursday expressed his doubts over IRI survey, saying that it was a paid one from Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PMLN).

He moreover claimed that unlike PTI other political parties have conducted fake Intra-party elections.

Talking to media in Islamabad, Khan accepted that “PTI’s popularity is decreasing since last few months because part leaders were busy in Intra-party polls but once it is concluded PTI will remain the popular party of the country”.

The survey declared PMLN chief Nawaz Sharif as the most popular political party of the country for Elections 2013 in terms of voting intentions.

Commenting on the problems encountered during the party elections, the PTI chairman said he will try to reconcile the contending leaders, however, if problems persist, they will hold the contentious elections again.

Replying over a question, he said If PTI would not find an appropriate candidate for any constituency it will prefer not contest from the electorate.

Imran Khan said that the days of traditional politics and family-limited parties were over and the time was rife for bringing about a real change and only the PTI had the capability and potential to turn the dream into a reality.

The PTI after coming into power would introduce a local bodies system under which the real power would be evolved to the general public, besides bringing new police system, as the force has been used by the rulers for their vested interests.
