TANDO MUHAMMAD KHAN: Pakistan People's Party candidate Waheeda Shah lost her temper in a polling station of PS-53 Tando Muhammad Khan and beat the polling staff present there, Geo News reported Saturday.

 

Waheeda Shah leveled an allegation of rigging on the polling staff and slapped the faces of female staff in the presence of police and voters.

 

According to Geo News correspondent, District Returning Office and SHO of the area were present inside the polling station when the incident took place.

 

Talking to Geo News Waheeda Shah alleged that the polling staff was allowing casting of fake votes. "This made me lose my temper and I hit the staff," she admitted, but added that it was only a slap.

 

She also admitted her mistake, saying: "It was my mistake that I hit the staff."

 

The PPP candidate also alleged that the polling staff was not facilitating the voters.

 

Meanwhile, Chief Election Commissioner Sindh Sono Khan Baloch said he had telephoned the concerned Returning Officer, seeking details of the incident. Action will be taken on a complaint in writing, he added.

The way these by-election were conducted by the election commission we can imagine how in future the election will be held. The current ruling elite will use all illegal means to remain in power. The only solution left is NATION MUST COME OUT IN MASSES AND REJECT BY THEIR VOTE ALL THE PRESENT RULING CLASS. It is sad & ashamed to see the way these parties were displaying the weapons during the election. Can they serve the people if elected, ANSWER IS NO, PLEASE WAKEUP PAKISTANIS BEFORE TOO LATE.
