The Pakistan Government's claim that it espouses self-governance in Pakistan occupied Kashmir has been exposed by the rigging of votes in the latest round of elections in the area, said People's Muslim League President Barrister Sultan Mahmood Chaudhry.
Talking to reporters here, Chaudhry was quoted by the Daily Times as saying that General Musharraf's claim of promoting self-governance in PoK was hollow and lacked credibility.
He alleged that ballot papers were distributed in Muslim Conference (MC)-dominated constituencies without the signatures of presiding officers.
Some 16,000 ballot papers were distributed among MC supporters at the residence of Sardar Atiq, he alleged.
