CM Gandapur maintains PTI’s stance on “cipher conspiracy”

7 min read

There is no doubt that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) stance on the “cipher conspiracy” remained unchanged, according to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Chief Minister Ali Amin Gandapur. After United States Assistant Secretary Of State Donald Lu’s recent testimony before a Congressional panel, it has become important that former ambassador to the United States (US) Asad Majeed be questioned.

According to the firebrand PTI leader, as ciphergate issue returns, the party’s stance on the diplomatic cable remains unchanged. He told the press that the cable constitutes a “conspiracy”, as well as an attempt by foreign interests to interfere in Pakistan’s internal affairs.

In a statement made to reporters outside a courtroom in the province, the chief minister of KP stated that “Cipher was a conspiracy […] Our stance is still the same”.

It was Gandapur’s contention if a meeting would not have been held with former Pakistani ambassador to the US, Asad Majeed, that the statement of Lu regarding the cipher was accurate, and if no meeting took place, it should be asked what the exact source of the cipher is.

According to Lu’s testimony, it is also possible that cipher does not exist since Imran Khan, the founder of the Pakistan People’s Party, is sentenced to death.

The leader of the party stated that his party would never allow any type of foreign intervention into the country, regardless of the cost.

Gandapur, once again accusing the recent elections of “worst rigging in history”, again referred to former PM Shehbaz Sharif’s entry into parliament as a result of a “flawed” Form 47. This was his latest jibe at the incumbent government.

As a result of the PTI’s 180 seats being stolen, the incumbent government has been formed at the Centre,” he added.

As a result of his discussions with the PM Shehbaz Sharif, he stated that there would be little point in talking to him because Sharif himself got elected based on the Form 47 results, as he criticized the general elections for 2024.

It was further stated by the KP CM that the country could receive no support from the incumbent government as a result of its failure to deliver. Gandapur responded to a question by saying that the PTI founder would never accept any kind of agreement with the current government.

According to him, there are a number of public issues in the province that will be resolved in the near future. In addition to that, he stated that the Centre has to pay the due funds to the province of KP.

In spite of the fact that some political parties, including those founded by Imran, have alleged that the returning officers (ROs) manipulated the results of the 2024 election, it is noteworthy that some of the returning officers did not follow records of Form 45 prepared by polling officers (POs) at the polling stations and issued entirely different results in Form 47 as a result.

Earlier, Gandapur had appeared before various courts seeking relief in different cases in which he made the above stated remarks. As part of the hearing at the anti-terrorism court in Islamabad, the chief minister and his lawyers filed a pre-arrest bail petition in an investigation pertaining to vandalism at a judicial complex in the federal capital alongside the chief minister’s lawyers

CM Gandapur’s bail plea was approved by the ATC, but a surety bond of Rs50,000 was ordered as part of his pre-arrest bail.

It was pointed out to the court by Gandapur’s attorney that the politician was nominated in the FIR (First Information Report) however, he did not witness the vandalism incident at the judicial complex, so he has no connection to it.

Raja Zahoorul Hassan, the lawyer for the politician, told the court there had been 50 FIRs filed against him but that he was forcefully prevented from entering the courtroom by the police.

As a result of this, Gandapur went to Islamabad kachehri on the order of a civil judge and a judicial magistrate in separate cases registered by police stations in Bani Gala and Golra, to suspend the arrest warrants issued by both judges.
