  • PTI media cell tried to make everything controversial: Ghani.
  • Says PTI-backed candidate’s nomination papers were rejected.
  • “Sher Muhammad did not appeal against rejection of his papers”.

KARACHI: Sindh Minister for Local Government Saeed Ghani on Sunday said the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has made victory of President Asif Ali Zardari’s daughter, Aseefa Bhutto Zardari, on NA-207 “controversial”.

Addressing media persons in Karachi, the provincial minister said the PTI media cell tried to make everything controversial but they would achieve nothing out of this.

Ghani said the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) had always been successful on the National Assembly seat in Nawabshah constituency with a big margin.

Even in 2018, when the PTI rose to power in the centre, the PPP won the NA seat from Nawabshah with a big lead, he said.

Aseefa was elected as a member of the National Assembly (MNA) in the Shaheed Benazirabad (former Nawabshah-I) constituency on March 29, following which the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) notified her election as an NA lawmaker without any contest.

It is noteworthy to mention here that 11 candidates, including Aseefa, had filed their nomination papers to contest the by-poll on the aforementioned seat vacated by President Zardari who assumed office after being jointly nominated by the ruling coalition.

Returning Officer Sher Ali Jamali had said nomination papers of seven independent candidates were rejected and the PTI independent candidate Sardar Sher Muhammad, who secured the second position in general election, did not appeal against rejection of his nomination papers.

Commenting on the February 8 general elections, Ghani said Zardari secured a lead of 50,000 votes on the Nawabshah seat.

No candidate stood any chance against Aseefa as an opponent would have got just 5,000 votes, he said, adding that she would have secured more votes than her father, if contested.

Ghani also rejected the claim that they abducted the PTI-backed candidate Ghulam Mustafa Rind, terming it as “baseless”.

The PPP leader said nomination papers of PTI-backed candidate Sher Muhammad Rind and his son were rejected by the electoral body.

Ghani claimed that Mustafa did not pay electricity utility dues, adding that his nomination papers would have been restored if he had submitted the arrears.

He said that the candidate did not pay his bill for fear of defeat.

Meanwhile, he said that Sher Muhammad’s documents were rejected for absconding in Balochistan and he did not appeal the decision.

Ghani also said the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl and Grand Democratic Alliance were defeated throughout Sindh in the elections. He dared JUI-F candidates to show any Form-45 in their favor in the province.
