Gilgit, April 9: The fears of rigging in elections are unfounded. I have a career spanning three decades which I cannot destroy by getting involved in rigging elections.
These views were expressed by Tahir Hussain, the newly appointed Chief Secretary of Gilgit-Baltistan, while talking to Pamir Times today.
He said that the fears of opposition parties with regards to rigging in the GB elections are unfounded. He vowed to support the election commission in holding free and fair polls in the region.
It is pertinent to note that several political parties have alleged that replacement of Sikandar Sultan Raja by Tahir Hussain is part of a pre-poll rigging plan.
