OUR STAFF REPORTER LAHORE- Central leader of PML-N, Hamza Shahbaz Sharif has said that the federal government has damaged the cause of Kashmir by rigging Azad Kashmir elections, while it got the polling in Lahore postponed after seeing a sure defeat of its party in the City. Addressing a news conference after the announcement of postponement of polling process of Azad Kashmir in Lahore constituency, Hamza said that the Election Commission of AJK also ignored the decision of Azad Kashmir High Court declaring voter lists incorrect, and thus played the role of PPP election office. Khawaja Saad Rafique, Zaeem Hussain Qadri and PML-N Candidate from constituency LA-37, Abbas Mir also accompanied him. Hamza alleged hurdles were being created in implementation of law and the Constitution. He said that by seeing a clear defeat, the so-called champions of democracy had done the shameful act of postponing elections. He said that under the situation anything could be expected from the President Zardari. Speaking on the occasion, Khawaja Saad Rafique alleged that the President and Prime Minister Houses used their pressure and influence for getting engineered results in Azad Kashmir elections. How a government which changed the mandate of the voters of Azad Kashmir would plead the case of plebiscite of Kashmiris, he questioned, adding if the results of election were high-jacked, it would be very dangerous for the freedom movement of Kashmir. He alleged that Punjab Governor Sardar Latif Khosa, Federal Minister Samina Khalid Ghurki and Raja Riaz misused the office of Governor and got the polls postponed fearing that PPP would lose Lahore seat. While saying that no justification was given for postponement of polling, he said the returning officer in Lahore played the role of a PPP jiyala. He also accused that PPP gangsters initiated attacks on PML-N workers during the polling process. Saad advised Asif Ali Zardari not to make mockery of democracy, and alleged that PPP did not even spare its allies, MQM and Muslim Conference, as the two parties were also complaining of pre-poll and during-poll rigging in the elections.
