Gilgit, October 15: Pakistan Peoples Party has appointed a corrupt and notorious chief election commissioner in Gilgit – Baltistan who rigged elections in Punjab to engineer election results. These views were expressed by Hafiz Hafeez ur Rehman, president PML – N, addressing a press conference at the Gilgit Press Club.
He said that kickbacks and nepotism was the only rule followed by PPP while awarding tickets to its candidates. “Seasoned ideological supporters of PPP were ignored because they lacked wealth”, he accused the PPP central leadership. He said that turncoat religious leaders who a couple of years back wanted to implement “Islamic law” in Pakistan were awarded tickets by the so-called secular Pakistan Peoples Party. He said that the slogans painted on walls of Gilgit, urging people to vote for “the book” and the “Islamic system” are testimony of how secular the party ticket holder in ward 1 of Gilgit was.
Hafiz also criticized transfer of government employees carried out across Gilgit – Baltistan and termed it an effort to engineer the election results.
