PTI concerns over NA-120 by-poll be addressed: Yasmin


LAHORE, Aug 31 (TNS): Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Yasmin Rashid on Thursday said the party has various options, including holding a sit-in, if its concerns over NA-120 by-poll are not addressed.

Addressing media while visiting the constituency, Rashid demanded that the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) take notice of the violation of code of conduct by the ruling party. She said that the party has registered its concerns with the ECP on issues like pre-poll rigging and polling scheme.

The PTI leader criticised Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz for not paying heed to the needs of the constituency’s residents, saying PML-N should have started development here before the announcement of the polling schedule.

The party has expressed similar concerns, saying the ECP is not independent and works under the incumbent government.
