Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Khawaja Saad Rafique on Thursday challenged the victory of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan in Lahore’s NA-131 constituency.
Rafique submitted a petition in this regard to Returning Officer (RO) Muhammad Akhtar Bhango.
The plea maintained that the presiding officer rejected hundreds of votes deliberately. The former Railways Minister has demanded a recount in the constituency as PTI chief won by a close margin.
In a major upset on Wednesday, Khan thrashed PML-N’s strong candidate Khawaja Saad Rafique in NA-131 while clean sweeping four other constituencies.
