Former prime minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan said on Thursday the ruling alliance after failing in all its attempts to control the “people of Pakistan” was now trying to steal the public mandate through the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP). He claimed that after realising that the government could not silence the people through intimidation they were now trying to control them through the ECP by manipulating the elections. “Funds from foreign countries or companies which can influence your policies is the foreign funding,” he added. He added that the ECP “wrongly” termed donations from expatriates as foreign funding. “The PTI is the first party in the country which collected money through political fundraising,” Imran said.
