Islamabad, November 23, 2020: Condemning the attacks on PPP workers in Gilgit Baltistan, Parliamentary Leader of the PPP in the Senate, Senator Sherry Rehman said, “Our workers were peacefully protesting when PTI workers attacked them. As if rigging the elections wasn’t enough, they have now resorted to violence”.
“Shelling and firing on peaceful protesters is unacceptable. Such acts are just an attempt by the federal government to aggravate the situation. How is it possible that PPP gets more votes but PTI ends up with more seats?” she questioned.
She said, “PPP maintains the right to peacefully protest against rigging. Has the government forgotten how they held the entire country hostage for 126 days? Burning cars to create chaos and blaming it on us is intolerable”.
“It seems that the chief election commissioner is biased and is not conducting forensic audit of the votes. They had shut down the country based on the results of four constituencies but cannot conduct forensic audit of one constituency on our demand,” she added.
Parliamentary Leader of the PPP in the Senate, Senator Sherry Rehman said, “Such acts by the federal government are only exposing their true self to the world. The PM will be responsible if the condition deteriorates in GB”.
