‘Will seek India’s help’ if admin fails to cooperate’

Observer Report

PML-N candidate for the Azad Jammu and Kashmir elections from LA-35 Jammu-2, Choudhary Muhammad Ismail Gujjar, said Sunday he would “seek India’s help” if the local administration does not cooperate with him.

The PML-N leader was speaking to the media in Gujranwala near a polling station set up in Government High School No 2, where the deputy commissioner had allegedly kicked out PML-N and All Jammu and Kashmir Muslim Conference’s polling agents.

Following their exit from the polling station, the agents reportedly got into a heated argument with the deputy commissioner after which the polling process was halted there.

Gujjar said his election camp was “dismantled” despite the presence of police personnel. He warned his party would “also cause problems” if the polling process did not continue peacefully.

“The deputy commissioner had asked my polling agents to leave and threatened them,” the Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) candidate said. He asked the government to take action, otherwise unrest will ensue “and people will die”.

Issuing a clarification later to a news channel, he said his statement was directed towards the administration.

“India kills Kashmiris in [occupied Kashmir] and over here, these people are taking down our camps.”
