ISLAMABAD – The central leader of Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf, Arif Alvi, has apologized on the statement of “35 punctures” and said that the source of this revelation was not authentic.
Arif Alvi said on twitter we should have confirmed the credibility of source before declaring that news publicly. He further said that we should not have believed in the conspiracies.
Najam Sethi, former caretaker CM of Punjab, has welcomed the remarks of Arif Alvi and aims that this would set a good precedent in Pakistani politics.
Earlier,Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan has also confessed that his claim of ’35 punctures’ during Dharna was not more than a political statement.
“The claim refers to alleged electoral rigging in 35 constituencies of Punjab, was just a political statement,” said Imran during an exclusive interview with Hamid Mir’s program ‘Capital Talk’ on Wednesday.
“Political statement means that Brigadier Samson told us, he heard it from Agha Murtaza Poya, and so it was tweeted and became the ’35 punctures’,” he said.
