RAWALPINDI–The Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) has sought the help of the station commander Rawalpindi in stopping the ruling PML-N from ‘influencing the cantonment elections’.
It also demanded the deployment of army personnel inside the polling stations on the polling day.
Zahid Kazmi, the secretary general of the PTI Punjab north, made the demand in a letter sent to the station commander, who is also the president of the Rawalpindi and Chaklala cantonment boards.
When asked by media why he did not register a complaint with the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) and approached the army officer, the PTI leader said the copy of the letter had also been sent to the secretary ECP.
About the request for the deployment of military officials inside the polling stations, he said the demand was made to get the code of conduct and election rules implemented in letter and spirit. He said during the 2013 elections the PML-N local leaders and workers had misbehaved with the PTI supporters.
