Lahore: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz on Tuesday, while warning the state premier about possible rigging in the upcoming polls, said that her party would fight any attempts in this direction.
Raja Farooq Haider, the prime minister of the autonomous state, said that any rigging in the upcoming polls would benefit India. “[Rigging in the elections] would benefit India and it will be a move to deceive the people the Azad Kashmir,” he said.
“Everything will go in vain if elections are rigged,” he added. AJK is scheduled to see general elections in summer, with the exact date yet to be announced.
Moreover, before the government announced postponement of examinations, the PML-N VP said that the government was putting students’ lives at risk by conducting O/A-Level exams at a time when the coronavirus situation is worsening.
“The countries in the region had opted for other ways to conduct the examinations, then why did this incompetent government put students in harm’s way,” she asked.
