PML-N links Pakistan’s future with free, fair and peaceful elections

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) on Sunday said that the future of the country is linked with free, fair and peaceful elections.

In a statement on social media, the PML-N stated that the party has suspended its political campaign on Sunday to mark the observance of the national day of mourning on the Mastung tragedy in which 131 people were killed after a suicide bomber struck Nawab Siraj Raisani’s election meeting in Darenghar area of Mastung.

Raisani, the brother of former Balochistan chief minister Nawaz Aslam Raisani, was a Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) candidate from the PB-35 constituency.

“The attack on political meetings is all the more worrisome given the elections are just 10 days away,” the statement said, adding that it is the responsibility of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), the interim government, and the law enforcement agencies to provide fool-proof security to electoral candidates and the political parties.

On the other hand, PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif reached Quetta on Sunday where he will offer condolence for Nawabzada Siraj Raisani and others who were martyred in the suicide attack in Mastung.

The PML-N president also posted about his arrival on social media and tweeted: “Just reached Quetta to condole with the Raisani family on the martyrdom of Siraj Raisani & other bereaved families whose near & dear ones lost their lives in tragic Mastung incident. May God rest their soul in eternal peace!”
