Babar later said that the PTI failed to answer the scrutiny committee.
“This was the 45th meeting of the scrutiny committee. We furnished proofs against the PTI in the past as well and the PTI has never been able to satisfy the ECP,” said Babar.
According to him, the PTI was asked by the ECP to submit any documents in its defense. Now the committee has asked the PTI to submit whatever response it wanted to give a reply to their proofs.
