Shutting down of mobile services beginning of rigging, says Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar

Former PPP senator Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar has said that the shutting down of mobile services on polling dat “is the beginning of election day rigging”.

“Pre-poll environment was already one of the worst in Pakistan’s history. Cutting candidates off from their agents and staff on election day is unacceptable,” he said.

“How’s one supposed to keep a check and highlight any irregularity? By the time news comes out, election would have been stolen,” he said.
