PPP plans to rig LG polls in Karachi: Kamal


Pak Sarzameen Party Chairman Syed Mustafa Kamal said the Pakistan Peoples Party-led Sindh government had called police from other cities of Sindh to rig the local bodies elections scheduled now to be held in Karachi and Hyderabad on August 28.

“These are not the police but the PPP workers. The world saw that in the first phase of the local governmetn elections, the PPP won the elections after dacoits and police stamped on ballot papers, while he Provincial Election Commission closed its eyes over this illegal move,” he said while addressing a press conference at the party’s office.

He said the PSP would not allow such abuse to happen in Karachi and Hyderabad and would strongly resist. “We appeal to our army chief and the chief justice to stop the PPP’s Sindh government from this cruelty and not to hand over the province to them.”

“In the by-elections of Punjab, the Election Commission of Pakistan is being praised for conducting transparent elections, then why are polls not being conducted in a transparent manner in Sindh? Why are there two laws in the same country?” he asked.

Kamal said the destruction in the monsoon rains in Karachi and Hyderabad were in front of everyone.
