Chairman Pakistan Tehreek Insaaf (PTI) Imran Khan said that PMLN-N has started match fixing in Gilgit-Baltistan.
On Sunday the PTI chief accused the government of nominating its own “Umpire” and started match fixing for the forthcoming elections in Gilgit-Baltistan region. Khan warned that his party will challenge it in court and take to the streets in case the polls were rigged.
Speaking to the media after announcement by some 50 Kashmiri politicians to join the PTI, Imran Khan said the appointment of G-B Governor is illegal and unconstitutional as after the 18th amendment, the Governor should be local candidate. Wearing a traditional pakol (cap) native to the region of G-B, the PTI chairman said that the government had maintained 12 cabinet ministers, all of whom were PML-N members, in Gilgit-Baltistan\’s caretaker setup instead of three cabinet members.
He added that the chief election commissioner was also a Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) activist. He said the governor has started distributing funds to purchase vote and thus it is clear before the elections that PML-N is going to indulge in rigging of elections.
