    Saad Rafique should be disqualified if he’s proven guilty.

    Benefit of the doubt must go to the PML-N candidate. Maybe he was saying Wazeefah for 90 mins in there.

    What else do you expect from PMLN? To win fair and square is not their policy, they can do anything and everything to win.

    This news is appalling, if anything. I find it convenient that no news channel is metioning Saad Rafique’s deplorable behavior. He should be disqualified. So far, the results for 125 have not been announced. If they have the audacity to declare that Rafique won, then there should be a massive protest. It’s blatantly clear that PTI won here. This is disgusting and should be brought to everyone’s attention.

    Polling Station after Polling Station that we visited in Lahore, was the same. Women lines at a standstill, rigging inside, booths stormed by elite force and PMLN and a complicit election staff. Justice (R) Kayani has to call in army in S Block DHA Lahore. In phase 5, DHA Lahore, while I was briefing Justice (R) Kayani with evidence, Elite force grabbed me and started kicking and beating me. Despite personally knowing me, he never stopped them. Rifle Butt marks all over my body bear testimony to what happened. Voter turnout was slowed beyond a snail pace, people intimidated. C42 TV has footage of this incidence.

    Not a supporter of pmln or pti as a matter of fact.. but quoting someones tweet, without any solid proofs, at this important time doesn’t feel justified to Pmln. There are millions of tweets to the contrary as well. I, at personal level, sense bias reporting.

    Did anyone noticed that soon as Nawaz deleiverd his so-called victory speech, the results of Lahore constituencies stopped coming in, and Ik and Hamid khan leading at one point by huge margin, suddenly lost. Clear rigging by PMLN.

    Never seen such things in this side of Panjab only such things used to happen in Bihar or Uttar Pardesh but now such things seldom happen there.

    Thanks Measha for exposing the truth…
    ECP or FIA should set up a confidential process where by Punjab government officials who had to .participate in this can act as whistle blowers (without facing “consequences” from their superiors)

    Lets not get “regional” here….
    Old faces from all parties around the country allegedly get up to these tricks

    @Samson Simon Sharaf:
    Oh My God, I feel so sorry for you…
    But how brave of you to report this and persevere..
    As each day passes, and more stories emerge, it appears the Nawaz victory becoming more illegitimate by the minute.

    @Lahorite from na 125:
    Well done Pak Army.

    There is something very fishy happening here….
    The question I have is…WHY DID THE ECP itself not ring the alarm bells when all this was happening….????

    How come Secretary ECP is making statements all went well, and I see on TV his own (women) officials saying they were punched, kicked, thrown out of polling stations and ballots snatched, that he is not jumping up and down himself asking for an investigation on who mishandled his staff…

    This is not a MINOR incident in a democracy…

    Very very strange…

    @ voter and Wahaj, Meesha is being quoted because she is a very attractive lady.
