ISLAMABAD: Muttahida Qaumi Movement on Monday claimed that a conspiracy of pre-poll rigging has been hatched against it to effect its popularity and get desired results in polls.
Party leader Senator Mustafa Kamal speaking in the Upper House claimed that in every election `a drama' is staged against his party as he objected delimitation in Karachi. "This act will effect our vote bank and tantamount to pre-poll rigging," he claimed.
He said delimitation cannot be carried out once the election schedule is announced and the decision is not welcomed by his party leadership and its workers.
Mustafa Kamal claimed people vote for MQM due to its performance and the efforts it makes for welfare of people. "If anybody wants to win the hearts of people, they will have to perform better than MQM."
"Decision of delimitation is disrespect to mandate of the MQM workers," he claimed and also called for measures to stop target killing of leaders and workers of political parties.
"If the peace is not restored and anti-state elements are left freely to act, the dream of strong democracy will not be fulfilled," he added.
