LAHORE PML-N Senator Pervaiz Rashid has said that four by-elections have been held so far in the Punjab during the last two years, but no complaint of rigging has been received from anywhere despite the fact that entire media has observed the process, while those elements who contested elections in the past with the help of police are levelling allegations of rigging. Addressing a largely-attended Press conference at Tajamal House, Gujrat on Tuesday, Pervaiz Rashid said that effective measures had been taken to ensure free and fair elections. Reports have been received that PML-Q leaders are gathering Wajahat Force for hooliganism in by-elections, he said, while reminding that it was the same 'force which had been involved in various illegal activities including grabbing of properties and kidnapping. He said that action was initiated against the force, but a Nano Goraya-type judge stopped the proceedings. He said sticks and batons were being stored in a house adjacent to Zahoor Elahi Palace. He further said that machines for producing fake identity cards had also been installed in some houses, but the PML-N had provided equipment to every polling agent for detection of bogus ID cards and stern action would be taken against those producing or using bogus ID cards. He said police had been given instruction to check vehicles whether they belong to Pervaiz Rashid or Pervaiz Elahi. Senior Advisor Sardar Zulfiqar Ali Khan Khosa said the police had been summoned from other districts for maintaining law and order and protection of life and property of the people and it would not be allowed to enter polling stations. Khawaja Saad Rafiq said that during meetings with the people of Gujrat, it had been revealed how they were kept under pressure by Chaudhrys. He said that there had been no increase in the vote bank of the PML-Q during the last two years whereas the large attendance of people in the public meetings of PML-N was a proof of its popularity. He said proud people of Gujrat would again punish those who violated the constitution. Raja Ashfaq Sarwar, Mansha Ullah Butt, Ch. Mubashar Hussain, Rana Arshad and other leaders were also present on the occasion.
