In his petition, Rasheed stated that he is willing to pay Rs 9.5 million to remove the objection of electoral body and added that the returning officer had illegally rejected his nomination papers.

He added that he had prepared payment cheques for money following the demand of Punjab House, but no information was given regarding the bank.
