ISLAMABAD - Federal Kashmir Affairs Minister Mian Manzoor Ahmad Wattoo on Sunday accused the Punjab government of casting bogus votes in connivance of police and local administration in AJK elections on various refugees seats. Addressing a press conference here, the federal minister said that returning officers were held hostage by the area police offices and bogus voters had been cast in the presence of Rangers who were seeing all this as silent spectators. He also charged the PML-N activists with uprooting the election camps of the PPP candidates in several areas besides restricting Samina Ghurki and Leader of Opposition in Punjab Assembly Raja Riaz to visit polling stations in Lahore. Rapping the Punjab government for breaking all records of rigging, Wattoo alleged PML-N accomplished their rigging plan in Sialkot and Jhang where the PPP activists were not only harassed but were also assaulted and intimidate. He claimed that during his AJK tour, Nawaz Sharif had talked about the gift of nine seats for the region, saying: This (prediction) was a living proof of rigging. He criticised the refusal of Punjab CM to pick Punjab Governors call about law and order, saying: such an indifferent attitude with the governor was not only below the dignity but also unconstitutional and illegal. He also criticised unofficial and incomplete results being aired by the private TV channels, saying: Such practice was totally against the electoral rules and regulations and could affect the actual results in these elections.
