Lahore: Dr. Yasmin Rashid General Secretary Punjab addressing the protesters in front of Governor House in Lahore she said that in General elections vote was casted for someone and won by another, Vote was cast for “change” but vote ends up being changed. She said that in every successful democracy of the world, it is a precedent for times now and ahead, that a person under investigation leaves his position and if proven guilty, they must leave their position for good. She told the example quoted by Chairman Imran Khan that Andrew Michele, a minister of David Cameroon comes under fire for racist remarks against a police officer. The police officer files a report against him. He left his post for 3 months and trial is run against him and returns to his post only when he is proven not guilty. She said that 11:30 on the clock on 11th of may 2013, Nawaz Sharif declared himself as the winner in the General Elections, she said that In a match, if the result is known before hand, then the match is fixed, not legitimate. She said that PTI demands Mian sahab to resign because how is it possible that Mian Sahab is the premier of the country and an investigation could be carried out against him. How can you ensure impartiality and free investigation?
