Talking to media after appearing in the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry praised the electoral watchdog for standing by the Supreme Court’s decision, saying that the way ECP rejected pressure and decided to go ahead with plan to hold elections on April 30 was commendable.
Fawad Chaudhry said that the party had written to the Chief Justice of LHC, requesting that denying to provide ROs from judiciary was violation of SC order.
The PTI leader said that yesterday’s rally had expressed public mood, and now the 220 million population was carrying ‘bat’ (PTI’s election symbol) in hands running after coalition partners of ruling PDM.

He said the party could never forget the death of its worker Ali Bilal aka Zille Shah, and Punjab IG, Mohsin Naqvi, CCPO Lahore and others would have to face justice.

He demanded of Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz to apologize to Imran Khan for the fuss they created against him.
Fawad Chaudhry demanded to constitute to judicial commissions, one to investigate into the murder of party worker Zille Shah, and the other to investigate into Toshakhana fiasco.
