Government and the Election Commission of Pakistan take action against the former commissioner of Rawalpindi

Sure, let’s simplify and rephrase the text:

The aftermath of serious accusations of election tampering by former Rawalpindi commissioner Liaquat Ali Chattha escalated on Sunday as the Punjab government decided to take legal action against him.

PTI has called for an impartial judicial commission to investigate the allegations, excluding the chief justice from its composition. Meanwhile, PML-N has criticized Chattha’s statement, likening it to past unrest, and accused PTI of inciting hostility against the bureaucracy.

At a press conference, Chattha accused the Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Sikandar Sultan Raja and Chief Justice (CJP) Qazi Faez Isa of involvement in electoral fraud. He claimed that election results were changed to ensure certain candidates’ victories.

In response, the Punjab caretaker chief minister ordered an inquiry committee to be formed, although concrete steps are pending. However, a senior provincial cabinet member revealed plans to file a legal case against Chattha, citing the lengthy process of inquiry committees.

The case, likely to be filed in Rawalpindi, will include various sections of the law to prosecute offenses such as conspiracy and spreading false election information.

PTI leaders have demanded a transparent inquiry, urging for the chief justice to stay away to ensure fairness. They also stressed the importance of making the inquiry’s findings public.

Meanwhile, PML-N condemned Chattha’s accusations as an attempt to cause trouble and warned against targeting officials.

As the situation develops, the Election Commission of Pakistan has summoned district returning officers (DROs) to testify before an inquiry committee to verify Chattha’s claims. This could lead to legal action based on the committee’s findings.
