CM Gilgit-Baltistan’s Law degree challenged in GB Election Commission

GILGIT: Accusing the Chief Minister Khalid Khurshid of using a fake degree to get his bar license, PMLN’s Farman Ali and PPP’s Abdul Hameed, both former cabinet ministers, have submitted two separate petitions to the Chief Election Commissioner, requesting annulment of the CM’s assembly membership.

The petitioners have accused the Chief Minister of submitting a law degree that was allegedly obtained using illegal and fraudulent means. The petitioners have also accused the Chief Minister of fraudulently calling himself a barrister during a press conference.

CM Khalid Khurshid has in the past rejected these allegations and maintained that his degrees are valid and obtained per laws.
