Protesters should visit PM House to inform of rigging: PM Nawaz

BAHAWALPUR: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said on Friday that those protesting should come to the PM House and inform of rigging during the general elections 2013.

The prime minister who was speaking at the Shamshi Park for the launching ceremony of the first solar power plant made this statement in an apparent reference to the May 11 protests planned by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT).

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif asked what the protest was against. “Can someone who is at a rally tell me what are they protesting about? Are they against the development of Pakistan?”

The prime minister called upon those who are complaining of rigging to inform of where the rigging took place. He said it was not correct to say that there was no rigging where they won seats and there was rigging where they lost.

The prime minister also spoke of the power crisis stating that load shedding would be eliminated before the tenure of the PML-N government ends.
