Helicopter sought for delivery of ballot papers in Torghar

MANSEHRA: The army and judiciary have sought a helicopter for delivery of ballot papers in the Torghar district of the Hazara division where there is no road access.

A meeting in this connection was held with district returning officer Mohammad Zeb Khan in the chair here on Tuesday. It was attended by Brigadier Fawad and returning officers of two national and five provincial assemblies’ constituencies. The participants of the meeting discussed in details measures to ensure a smooth and impartial election in Mansehra and Torghar districts.

As the polling stations set up along the Indus River had no roads to access, the participants of the meeting said, it would be better if the Election Commission of Pakistan arranges helicopter for the prompt and the safest possible delivery of the ballot papers there.

Meanwhile, District Police Officer Rasheed Khan visited polling stations in the far-off Battakundai area in the Kaghan valley.

He was accompanied by a police party and reviewed the arrangements in the light foolproof security measures there.

It would be worth mentioning here that after the arrest of the Pakistan Muslim League-N contenders Capt (r) Mohammad Safdar, the publication of ballot papers was stopped to exclude his name from the list of contestants.
