TANDO MOHAMMAD KHAN: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) has called a shutterdown strike today (Thursday) in Tando Mohammad Khan to protest Election Commission’s disqualification of Waheeda Shah for hitting female polling officers during PS-53 by-election, Geo News reported.

 

Business activities in the city were closed while thin transport was observed on the roads. Additional troops of security forces were deployed in the affected areas to maintain peace.

 

On February 25, Waheeda Shah had slapped Presiding Officer Habiba Memon and Assistant Presiding Officer Shagufta Memon in a polling station of PS-53 Tando Muhammad Khan in the presence of a DSP.

 

In a landmark verdict, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) had disqualified PPP’s candidate for two years and declared her election in PS-53 Tando Muhammad Khan null and void.

Please keep the innocent law abiding citizenary of this country out of this nefarious and shameful business. Only the leadership of Pakistan Plunderers Party (PPP, for short) are the real culprits and deserve every condemnation.

PPP's strike is now a slap on the face of judiciary. This is PPP's old style, Benazir use to say victory and justice done when it was in her favor and used word "chamak" (rishwat/bribery)when the decision was against.

This is street agitation to force judicial authorities and prevent them for enforcing justice.

There's some little discrepancy between the crime of assault by slapping, and 2subverting" the actual election by the electorate. There ought to be a better solution, in my opinion.

Feudals are kings of streets, if non complience be ready for consequences. this nation needs more slaps.

Let me get this right. they are striking because she was disqualified for slapping a government official but no for the slapping. this can only happen in Pakistan. Shame on us all.

Sindh Chief Minister's statement saying two punishments are harsh and his failure to condemn Waheed's violence is disappointing. Waheeda should have been fined also as lot of money is spent by EC as well as opponents. Failure of PPP High command to condemn her is disappointed and more disappointing is the call for strike and criticizing EV verdict.
