MUZAFFARABAD: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice-President Maryam Nawaz on Sunday warned the incumbent government of a strong reaction if elections in Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) are “rigged,” ARY News reported.
Addressing a rally in Hattian Bala, AJK, as part of her election campaign, the PML-N leader alleged that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government was spending money to “buy votes” ahead of polls in Azad Jammu and Kashmir.
“If the govt attempted to rig elections in AJK, Raja Farooq Haider and PML-N would stage a sit-in Islamabad,” she added.
Hitting out at the federal government, the PML-N leader said that the life of the common man in Pakistan has become unbearable due to the “poor economic policies of the incumbent government.”
