ISLAMABAD: Leader of the House in Senate Raja Zafar-ul-Haq on Saturday alleged that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz was facing difficulties in its election campaign in Punjab due to lack of neutrality and impartially.
Participating in debate on law and order situation in the country, Haq alleged that ‘singling out PML-N in Punjab may have negative impact on the whole election campaign and results.’
He said ‘it was unfortunate that PML-N workers were barred from welcoming their leader on July 13,’ adding Nawaz Sharif preferred to come back to Pakistan despite his seriously ill wife.
He also alleged that fake cases were being registered against PML-N leadership.
Haq stressed for taking additional steps to hold free, fair and transparent elections and said ECP has the mandate to carry out the electoral exercise.
Pakistan Peoples Party’s Rehman Malik said that the meeting of Senate Standing committee on Interior had discussed security arrangements for upcoming elections, and the cyber crime situation in the country in the context of elections.
He said that National Coordinator of National Counter Terrorism Authority (NACTA) had briefed the committee about possible threats to various political parties and candidates during their election campaigns and on polling-day.
Senator Javed Abbasi asked the Chairman Senate to summon in-camera session to discuss the issues, shared by the Secretary Election Commission with the interior committee.— APP
