Islamabad  -  The Election Commission of Pakistan has ordered the Punjab government to hold an inquiry into the incident of alleged stopping of a campaign convoy of PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari at Uch Sharif.

In a statement on Monday, the commission said that if the provincial government finds flaws in the conduct of local officers, the commission will take action against the responsible.

The PPP leaders in their letters to the ECP had accused certain police officials of obstructing the PPP’s election campaign.

It is requested to ECP to issue directive to Authority/Private media channels to refrain from giving false and malicious paid advertisement for holding free, fair and transparent elections.
