Baloch accused that NP candidates were deliberately declared unsuccessful through rigging in some constituencies, including PB-50. “Ballot papers were brought after 48 hours through helicopters and an opposition candidate was declared winner from PB-50,” he said, adding that how PML-N’s candidate Akbar Askani, who did not even run his election companion, could win the elections.
He said that NP had submitted application against the rigging to the ECP and would strongly protest throughout the province if the grievances were not removed. “If our grievances were not removed we will go the people,” he added.To a question, Baloch said that meeting of central committee had been called on May 19 to take final decision whether to join the government or not.
