Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz has once again stepped on war path when she held “agencies working under Prime Minister Imran Khan” responsible for the rigging in by-elections in Daska.
Addressing a rally in Wazirabad, Maryam claimed that “we have full information about rigging” and asked the authorities that they should reveal the names of those involved in the act, “or we will have to do it.”
She said alleged that Imran Khan “robbed” the by-election and termed the by-polls “a referendum” against the ruling party.
“You lost miserably in Balochistan, Sindh and Nowshera,” she claimed.
Maryam quoted a member of the cabinet who used to say that the PML-N leader has absconded to London and had lost power but he “defeated them in their stronghold,” a reference to the ruling party’s defeat in Nowshera.
After the ‘exemplary defeat’ in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, she said the government resorted to high-handed tactics and tried to “rob” the mandate in Punjab.
The PML-N vice president called the PTI “defeat” a revenge from Daska and Wazirabad and also exposed the elections of 2018.
She accused the administration of resorting to firing at a polling station and the following chaos made it easy for them to rig election.
She claimed that the PTI workers stole polling bags which slowed down the voting process.
Maryam said that staff of 20 polling stations had disappeared but suddenly appeared in the Returning Officer’s office in the morning.
She said that when she complained to the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), it admitted the fact that staff of 20 polling stations had gone missing.
Maryam said Imran Khan is willing for re-polling because he is caught red-handed.
She denied Imran khan’s claim that the PML-N’s politics is over by saying that the people of Daska and Wazirabad have rubbished his claims.
She said that despite corruption charges against Nawaz Sharif, people still voted for him.
She said that had there been justice in Pakistan, corruption cases against Nawaz Sharif would have been rejected as “inadmissible” by courts.
