Losing PPP candidate threatens hunger strike till death
The demand of PPP’s Syed Sardar Hussain for recounting of votes is
a realistic approach because the margin of votes – just seven – by
which his opponent has been declared the winner is nothing in the
present scenario where people have reached assemblies by defeating
their rivals with a thousands of votes.
In many parts of the country, recounting has been ordered where the
difference of votes was in thousands. Another fact of this election
is the record breaking rigging by some people in this constituency
(PK-90). Reliable sources are saying that the MPA-elect allegedly distributed
millions of rupees among the voters in the shape of cash, wheat,
petrol/diesel and even hundreds of wheelbarrows. On the other hand,
we cannot level such an allegation against the PPP candidate due to
his known financial position.
Lastly, those people who gave votes to the APML candidates in the
name of Pervez Musharraf will soon realize that Musharraf slogan
was just a political propaganda. The MPA-elect, Ghulam Mohammad,
has already announced his decision to join the PTI-led government
in KPK in the hope that he would get a cabinet slot. As he is a
good businessman, he has to at least recover his ‘investment’ in
the election in double profit.
