The PTI leader accused the PML-N of buying and selling votes in the constituency.
He reached a private factory on Vehari Road along with the PTI workers and blamed that there was a fake polling station inside the factory.
He repeatedly slammed the gate of the factory. “Open the door! You are stamping ballot papers inside,” he shouted.
“Where is the returning officer? Can’t he see that?” he questioned.
“If you do not let me in, at least show Rohi TV channel the situation inside,” Qureshi said to the factory workers.
On the other hand, the factory owner rejected the allegations of Shah Mehmood Qureshi and stated that there was no polling station inside their factory.
Factory owner Zulfiqar Chaudhry said that Shah Mehmood Qureshi came to the factory with armed guards. “A clash could have occurred in the factory if we opened the gate,” he added.
The factory management said that they were going to submit a complaint to the district returning officer.
