PML-N slammed for by-polls ‘rigging’

The Punjab PPP has lambasted the PML-N leadership for using negative tactics to rig the upcoming by-polls in various constituencies of the province.

Flanked by senior PPP provincial leader Usman Salim Malik, Punjab PPP general secretary Sami Ullah Khan, in a press conference on Tuesday, came hard on the PML-N for its ‘moral bankruptcy’ which had become obvious due to its maneuvering in the by-polls.

He said the PML-N had awarded party ticket to Mian Ajmal Asif from PP-63 against PPP Punjab president Rana Aftab Ahmed despite the fact that Ajmal had to resign for possessing a fake graduation degree.

He said Ajmal Asif was a ticket-holder of the PML-Q in the February 2008 polls but now, despite all its tall claims of principled politics and hatred against Musharraf, the PML-N had fielded the same man as its candidate.

Sami Ullah Khan also expressed dismay over the statement of Punjab Law Minister Rana Sana Ullah Khan for terming PP-63 a battle between Mian Nawaz Sharif and Asif Ali Zardari. He appealed to the judiciary to declare Asif Ajmal disqualified for possessing fake degree as it had done in case of two PPP candidates on similar allegations.
