Minister for Planning and Development Ahsan Iqbal says the Government is ready to form Judicial Commission for probe into the alleged election rigging within the parameters of the law.

He said this while talking to newsmen in Islamabad on Friday [Jan 23].

Ahsan Iqbal said if PTI wants Judicial Commission to investigate that whether there was any massive or organized rigging in 2013 general elections or conspiracy to defeat PTI then the Commission can be formed within hours. However, if PTI wants to form the Commission on its terms of reference involving some administrative lapses it will be contrary to the constitution. He said in this case we will have to create a consensus taking other parties into confidence. He said it also requires amendment in the constitution.

To a question, he said no operation of any kind is being carried out against Madaris.  He said Wafaqul Madaris should review syllabus of Madaris.

The Minister said all indicators of economy are positive and Karachi Stock Exchange (KSE) is doing record business. 

He said despite numerous challenges, journey towards country's betterment is continuing. He said we will go to the people in 2018 after overcoming load-shedding and elimination of terrorism.

He said the Government is focusing on internal capacity building of institutions which was ignored in last many years.
