LAHORE - The PPPs Punjab organisation has accused the PML-N of using immoral tactics to rig the coming bye-elections in Punjab. Addressing a news conference at partys Faisal Town secretariat, PPP office-bearers, Sami Ullah Khan, Dr Hasnaat Khan and Usman Saleem Malik said that PML-N had become morally bankrupt, which was evident from the fact that it had awarded party ticket to a candidate from PP-63 who had to resign from his Punjab Assembly seat after it was established in the court that he contested last election submitting a fake graduation degree with the Election Commission of Pakistan. Sami Ullah Khan said that Asif Ajmal, who contested 2008 general election on PML-Q ticket, was one of the remnants of the Musharraf regime. He said nomination of a fake degree holder as party candidate in Faisalabad by the PML-N leadership has put a big question mark on its so-called principled politics. He appealed to the judiciary to declare Asif Ajmal disqualified for having a fake degree as it did in case of two PPP candidates on similar allegations. Sami Ullah said it was not fair on the part of Law Minister Rana Sanaullah, who has termed the electoral contest in PP-63 as a battle between Mian Nawaz Sharif and Asif Zardari. The PPP leader further alleged that PML-N was repeating the same tactics in NA-167 (Vehari), as it used in the last bye-election in Bahawalnagar. He said Punjab government had registered fake cases against PPP local leaders, Nazir Jatt and Asghar Ali Jatt in Vehari district to rig the election. He said PPP condemned this unethical act on the part of the PML-N ahead of bye-election in that district. Sami also came down hard on a media group for what he called character assassination of PPPs top leadership. He warned that PPP workers may retaliate any time if that media organization did not mend its ways. He said PPP would organize protest demonstrations outside press clubs to register its protest.
