ISLAMABAD:(APS)Oct 14,2015-Interior Minister Ch. Nisar Ali Khan has urged PTI not to raise political tension and avoid confrontation in national interest.
Addressing a news conference in Islamabad on Wednesday, he said PTI leader Imran Khan is levelling baseless allegations about registration of new voters and transfer of votes from NA-122 Lahore.
The Interior Minister clarified that NADRA has nothing to do with registration or transfer of votes. It only notifies the Election Commission when a citizen attains the age of 18 and it is job of the Commission to enlist them as voters.
Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan not a single vote was transferred from any constituency after announcement of local government election schedule on August 26 this year.
He clarified that vote is transferred from one constituency to another only through application of the voter who is required to attach a photo copy of his identity card as well.
The Interior Minister urged PTI leader not to bring national institutions into disrepute.
He told a questioner that sixteen thousand personnel of armed forces and law-enforcing agencies would perform security duties during Moharram.
