DADU: At least one person died in a fight between workers of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) in Dadu on Sunday, reported Express News.

According to initial reports, the fight broke out over an issue of putting up party banners and flags in an area.

The brawl led to an exchange of fire between the two parties, resulting in the death of one person belonging to the PML-N.

After the incident, the PML-N workers staged a sit-in at Indus Highway, blocking all traffic.

According to the Election Commission of Pakistan’s (ECP) code of conduct, candidates and their supporters are not allowed to affix party flags on public property without permission and they must refrain from using loudspeakers and wall chalking.

The banners and posters must not exceed the sizes notified by the ECP and private property is not to be used without permission for political activities including displaying banners and posters.

But election campaigns being run by political parties are in violation of the code of conduct.

Mirza | 8 years ago | Reply There should be a big reaction to the killing of one MPL man. Just like there was EC taking notice of IK's language against Sharif. The daily bombings and deaths of ANP, MQM and PPP workers and leaders should never be noticed.
